Scholarship at UNHCR
UNHCR provides, on a limited basis, scholarships for refugees at the tertiary level in universities and polytechnic institutions through the Albert Einstein German Academic Refugee Initiative Fund (DAFI). Funding for this programme is provided by the Federal Government of Germany. The purpose of the DAFI Programme is to contribute to the self-reliance of refugees by providing them with professional qualifications for future employment. Scholarships are granted only for studies in the country of asylum. Preferably, UNHCR would like to see the graduates return home and contribute to the construction of their home country, or to the development of the country of asylum or the refugee community at large.
