Syrian Student Project

The Syrian Student Project (SSP) was created by Theresa Kubasak and Gabe Huck, who also founded the Iraqi Student Project, another CoR grantee, in 2007. From 2017 to 2022, sixty Iraqi refugees received tuition waivers at American universities. In 2015, Kubasak and Huck began working with Syrian refugees in Istanbul. In 2016, six Syrian students attended American colleges with tuition waivers. In 2017, six more began studying at Canadian universities.

A 2017 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network funded official English language exams and the costs of study permits and visas to Canada for five Syrian refugees in Turkey.
