University of Iowa: Offer 10 scholarships to Syrian students
We call on University of Iowa to provide at least 10 scholarships to Syrian students for upcoming classes. We also call on Iowa to join the Syria Consortium and encourage other institutions to join by raising awareness about the plight of Syrian students. We also call on leaders of the international community to take action to protect school and students in Syria, by whatever means necessary.
The University of Iowa accepts over 31387 students every year, offering many generous scholarships. As students of Iowa, we think that some of the seats should go to Syrian refugees who would otherwise have no education. We are calling on Iowa to join the Syria Consortium organized by the IIE to offer scholarship opportunities for Syrian students. We hope that Iowa can be a leader to universities around the world by offering these Syrian students a second chance at getting their education.
