Description

The Cause:

Teach Syrian war affected youth.

The Middle East Scholars program is intended for high-potential students from the Middle East whose opportunity for study has been disrupted by war and violence.  Students will be identified as LCC works in partnership with NGOs, UN groups and humanitarian organizations in Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Turkey. Students from minority and under-represented groups (including women) who have limited or no likelihood of returning home, or who have limited opportunity to study elsewhere in the region because of their identity, will be a priority.

LCC Georgia offers courses to pre-university students from Georgia and the region.
