Executive Coordinator

We at the German-Syrian Research Society are looking to expand our Academic Empowerment Scholarship (AES) team. We are still in the process of fund-raising for our main scholarship project. Nevertheless, we have started offering small grants; one of them is the AES Language Exam Scholarship. AES Language Exam Scholarship opens twice a year and finances language exam fees, such as (TOEFL, IELTS, TELC, etc…), for Syrian students who are in need of those certificates to continue their higher education abroad. We mainly finance Syrian and Palestinian-Syrian applicants who live in Syria or Syria’s neighboring countries.
