08/05/2018Supporting forced migrants into higher education

The Article 26 project, which equips universities to develop and implement scholarships for asylum-seeking students, has just launched a set of guiding principles which provide the foundations for any sanctuary initiative designed to support the success of forced migrants in higher education. 

These new guiding principles will help universities to establish, sustain and grow their scholarships and other initiatives to facilitate the educational progression of asylum seekers and refugees within their institutions.

Read about the guiding principles here.
