Scholarship at Blue Rose Compass
Blue Rose Compass announced that it will facilitate the university scholarships of 1,000 Syrian refugee young girls and women — ages 18 to 34 — over the next five years in Argentina. The scholarship recipients, now based mostly in Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon, will be granted humanitarian visas, making them eventually eligible for citizenship in Argentina. The scholarships will be awarded to Syrian refugees living in Lebanon and Jordan with the first placements at universities in Buenos Aires before being extended to other cities in Argentina. Over the next four months a group of 20 students will be selected and vetted by Blue Rose Compass and the Argentine government, with further groups of 196 students over the next five years. The refugees, aged between 17 and 32, will be offered intensive courses in Spanish and the opportunity to live with fellow university students to help them assimilate.
