University of the People Scholarships

Field of Study: All subjects
Country of scholarship: USA
Country of Citizenship: Syria


The University of the People’s Emergency Refugee Assistance Scholarship Fund has allocated funding for 500 scholarships for refugees, predominantly those from Syria.

The University of the People offers online, accredited degree programmes to any qualified applicant. Tuition is free, but application and assessment fees bring the cost of completing a two-year associate’s degree to approximately $2,460, and a four-year bachelor’s degree to around $4,860.

Scholarship recipients will have up to ten assessment fees funded. Upon completion of the funds awarded, students may apply for another scholarship, and thus potentially cover the entire cost of an undergraduate degree.

Opportunities for providing a stipend depend on available funds; students must inquire about that with the admission office. 

Deadline: Open 


  • Students must be refugees 
  • Students must be accepted to the University of the People
