Young refugees receive opportunity to study

Germany is enabling 2,500 additional refugees to study at university with assistance from the Albert Einstein German Academic Refugee Initiative (DAFI).

Germany is awarding 2,500 additional scholarships to refugees worldwide. As a result, the Federal Foreign Office is supporting the Albert 
Einstein German Academic Refugee Initiative (DAFI) at the United 
Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR). DAFI enables talented refugees to complete a higher education in the country where they have found 
asylum or – in the event of their return – in their native country. The new scholarships will above all support Syrian refugees in the states neighbouring the civil war-torn 
country: up to 1,000 scholarships 
will be awarded in Turkey, and 
700 are available for refugees in 
Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt and northern Iraq.
