Scholarship Programs

Refugee Relief Initiative Scholarship Programme enables young refugee and internally displaced students to pursue their primary, secondary, and higher education in order to become self-reliant and become vital contributors to their host economies.
We achieve this in two ways:
1. By connecting interested sponsors with refugees students.
2. By connecting eligible refugee students with higher educational opportunities like national and international scholarships, internships and mentorships.

RRI sent trained volunteers with laptop and internet connectivity for free to eligible and interested refugee students in Akwa Ibom State to apply for the DAFI (Albert Einstein German Academic Refugee Initiative) scholarship in 2021.

In 2022 RRI also providing free laptop and internet connectivity to interested refugee students by help of Community Navigator to facilitate application for the Progetto Mediterraneo a.y 2022/2023 Luiss and Fondazione Terzo Pilastro – Internazionale scholarship in Italy.
