What is CRSC?
The Cambridge Refugee Scholarship Campaign was launched in October 2017 in response to the devastating impact that the ongoing refugee crisis has had on the education of refugee students. Our aim is to work with the University of Cambridge to provide at least 10 scholarships every year that cover course and maintenance fees for refugees and individuals who have been granted international protection by the state in which they reside lawfully.
If you have supported our campaign since October 2017, you may have noticed that we have changed our scholarship funding model. To learn more about why this change has been made, please read this official statement.
Join us for a panel discussion on Reaction and Responsibility to Refugee Resettlement:
In the face of the current, critical levels of human displacement and migration, join the CRSC for a discussion looking at the significance of education, alongside other human and social necessities, in the process of finding ‘home’ and stability in today’s shifting world. The panel will address the challenges and threats facing education by human displacement and humanitarian crises. It will also consider the nature of resettlement and the challenges faced by refugees in a new country.
