After successful implementation over the past five years, the Japanese Initiative for the future of Syrian Refugees decided to continue offering educational opportunities to Syrian youths to study in graduate courses for their master’s degrees at Japanese universities.
The objective of JISR is to support Syrian refugees who have potential to contribute to the reconstruction of Syria in the future. This program offers opportunities for young Syrian refugees (hereinafter referred to as “Participants”) to study in graduate courses for their Master’s degrees at Japanese universities. This program intends to foster capable Syrian individuals to lead Syria’s reconstruction and peacebuilding efforts at an appropriate time in the future, while enhancing their understanding of Japanese people, society and systems so as to strengthen the mutual friendship between Syria and Japan.
This program targets Syrian refugees known to UNHCR, who are currently residing in Jordan or Lebanon, and who will play leading roles in Syria’s reconstruction and peacebuilding efforts in the private, governmental, or educational sectors in the future.
