Supporting Syrian Newcomers Project
The President’s Award for Refugees and Displaced Persons
is providing financial support to 10 Syrian students at the University of Alberta. Two Award recipients began their studies in January 2016 and seven began in September 2016. Four of them came to us through WUSC
directly from asylum countries in the Middle East. We want to ensure these students feel welcome and have our support in settling in to life on campus and our city, and toward this end we have implemented a volunteer program.
