In a trailblazing move to help young Syrian refugees shape their own future, the German University in Cairo (GUC) will give 10 scholarships for graduates to carry out a Masters Programme. The opportunity, announced through the university’s website, is the result of a partnership between the German Federal Foreign Office (AA) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in cooperation with Ulm University.

The scholarships will be available for young Syrians who currently reside in Egypt and are registered as refugees through the UNHCR, offering them the possibility of studying a two-year Master Program in the fields of Engineering or Management Technology at GUC for the period 2016/2017. The scholarship will cover their tuition fees for the two-year Master degree, a monthly allowance of €500, and extra preparatory university courses if needed.

The programme runs across various fields such as Computer Science and Engineering, Digital Media Engineering and Technology, Mechatronics, and management-related careers such as Economics, Finance, Human Resources, Innovation and Technology Management, International Business, and Marketing, among others. They are accepting applications until July 30th.
