On 8 March 2017, the European Resettlement Network hosted the second edition of its webinar series exploring complementary pathways of refugee admission to Europe. This webinar focused on higher education scholarship opportunities for refugee students as one such pathway.
Expanding safe and legal pathways for refugees to reach Europe in a way that is complementary to resettlement is central to enhancing access to international protection and providing a durable solution for those in need. Scholarship opportunities to higher education institutions have the potential to offer a legal pathway for refugees to arrive safely in Europe. Moreover, increased access to such opportunities can offer refugees hope for a better future, enhanced opportunities for economic self-reliance, and greater participation in civic and public life.
