In March 2021, we launched our pilot-project ALS (Academpower Language Scholarship) as a part of the German Syrian Research Society, with the aim to fund the language exam for Syrian students applying for international scholarships and study programs.
Due to the large number of applications, we could at this time only accept students who are accepted or short-listed in an international scholarship, and in an urgent need to submit an international language certification (such as TOEFL, IELTS, TELC, … etc.)
Applicants were distributed in Syria 60%, and the rest in the neighboring countries. 73% of the applicants hold a bachelor degree and pursue a master’s degree.
7% of the applicants announced that they are accepted/shortlisted for a scholarship, but only 50% of them provided valid documentation supporting their announcement, who were financially supported by Academpowr Language Scholarship.
