Empowering Students

The scholarship programme aims to empower people through educational opportunities and is targeted towards individuals who demonstrate the potential to become leaders and drivers of change within the target countries of Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine.

Scholarships are being offered for one-year Masters degree courses with no restrictions on academic subjects; candidates must demonstrate that their subject will enable them to contribute to the development of their home country.

Exciting step forward

Professor Tracy Lightfoot, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Teaching, Learning and Students, said: “We are dedicated to finding new ways to support students to achieve their potential, wherever they are from in the world, and our partnership with the Saïd Foundation is an exciting step forward in identifying the next generation of leaders to create positive societal change.”  

Catherine Thomé, CEO at Saïd Foundation said: “We are delighted to welcome the University of York as a valued university partner. Our scholars from the Levant region will be able to benefit from the world-class teaching and research offered by the University as well as enjoying the beautiful historic city of York.”
