Bursaries and Scholarships

Funding education, even on a part time basis, is a challenge many individuals face when arriving to Canada.  Newly arrived Montrealers may need to build on existing credentials and having access to bursaries and scholarships can help alleviate some of the financial burden.   

In 2016, le Centre Culturel Syrien partnered with the McGill School of Continuing Studies to help create the following bursary funds to help recent arrivals to Montreal. These include the following:

  • Karim Ghassan Ejjeh Bursary for Syrian Refugees
  • Nizar Qabbani Bursary for the School of Continuing Studies
  • Bursaries for Refugees, a crowdfunding initiative supported by alumni and the Montreal community

Building on this momentum, the 2016 Concert for Syria, is partnering with the School of Continuing Studies to establish a scholarship fund for students of Syrian origin.  Support this project, by making your donation TODAY.
