Make a gift today and fund a life-changing scholarship
Aiming Higher seeks to bridge the higher education gap for forcibly displaced people like Sara. Currently we are seeing only 5% of refugees completing higher education, and we need to do better.
The UN Refugee Agency wants to give an additional 1,800 refugees across the globe access to higher education by 2023, and that means taking action without delay.
Generations of young people are missing out on the opportunity to pursue their interests and work towards a better future due to systemic inequality in access to higher education.
Donate today and fund a student through a UNHCR Refugee Scholarship (DAFI). $2186 is enough to cover all essential education expenses of one student for an entire school year, including travel, housing, food, books and uniforms.

“There are many refugees like me, who could become doctors or teachers or researchers or business owners, and it is them I am thinking of now. Please donate to give them the same opportunity that I have had”
