At DAWNetwork, it is our mission to remove barriers to enable women in Syria to pursue higher education. One of the most significant barriers is financial; registering for TOEFL, a commonly-accepted English language test, can cost over a month’s salary. Duolingo has emerged as a strong alternative to the more expensive tests and we are grateful to the team at Duolingo for unrelentingly advocating to make the test available despite limitations from U.S. sanctions. We are thrilled to offer this scholarship to Syrian high school and college students hoping to pursue higher education abroad. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. All eligibility requirements must be met and applicants must be prepared to take Duolingo within three months of being offered the scholarship.
