Last week, Georgetown brought together government officials, college presidents, higher education leaders, students, and advocates for an event launching a new U.S. State Department program that helps refugee students pursue higher education and resettlement in the U.S.
A new education program empowers U.S. colleges and universities to sponsor refugee students so they can resettle in the U.S. and pursue their higher education goals.
In response to the humanitarian crises limiting educational access in Afghanistan and Ukraine, U.S. educators are working to help refugee students pursue their college degree.
The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security is providing Afghan women leaders and scholars in exile access to higher education and platforms to continue their advocacy for women and girls who remain in Afghanistan.
Refugee advocacy groups and U.S. colleges are working to help resettle displaced Ukrainian and Afghan students and ensure their access to educational opportunities.
