The Columbia University Scholarship for Displaced Students 2022-2023 is now accepting applications.
The Columbia University Scholarship for Displaced Students (CUSDS) is a program designed to help displaced students pursue higher education at Columbia University, one of the world’s most prestigious universities.
The Scholarship provides financial assistance to displaced students from all over the globe who are unable to finish their higher education.
These students will receive up to full tuition, housing, and living aid while pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees at any of Columbia’s 19 schools and affiliates, demonstrating the university’s entire commitment to tackling the worldwide challenge.
This initiative will contribute up to $6 million in assistance every cohort, for up to 30 students each year, as the first-ever Columbia-wide award and the world’s first scholarship of its sort.
The Scholarship, as well as Columbia’s schools and student clubs, will offer mentoring and assistance.
The scholarship may pay up to full tuition, including the student’s accommodation and living costs, for the number of terms required to finish the corresponding degree, depending on the institution and degree program.
