Chevening Scholarships Videos

Since 1983, Chevening has brought over 50,000 exceptional professionals from around the world to study in the UK through scholarships and fellowships funded by the UK government. This unique opportunity has helped to elevate careers, transform communities, shift and deepen perspectives, and build intercontinental bridges. The Syrian Association worked on a series of 10 videos to support students applying as part of Tariqi (May way) project. 

Said Scholarships Videos

The Saïd Foundation Scholarships Programme aims to promote education and development in the Middle East by providing educational and training opportunities to outstanding individuals who demonstrate the potential to become leaders and innovators of change. The scholarships help career development and enable individuals to achieve impact in their professional fields and bring benefits to others in their countries of origin. The Syrian Association worked on a series of 10 videos to support students applying as part of Tariqi (May way) project.

Personal Statement/Motivation Letter Videos

Understanding how to write a personal statement is an essential step towards accessing higher education or applying for scholarships. However, this could be a challenging task for students who are not familiar with it.  The Syrian Association worked on a series of 3 videos to support students writing their personal statement as part of Tariqi (My way) project.

Winning a scholarship requires a good understanding of scholarships in terms of searching for them, learning their requirements, and being informed on how to apply. The process may also require developing certain skills and experiences as well as a good action plan. In this guide, we offer students the fruit of the effort of a number of the Syrian Association’s volunteers, who had won scholarships around the world and wish to share their experiences so as to contribute to improving Syrian students’ chances of winning scholarships

The manual is currently being written. We are expecting to finish the manual in Jun 2020. Kindly visit around this time.
