The DAAD has launched a follow up initiative to the successful HOPES programme (Higher and Further Education Opportunities and Perspectives for Syrians). The new HOPES-LEB initiative sponsored by the European Union (EU) with 8.4 million Euro aims at enabling vulnerable members of the host community and Syrian refugees in Lebanon to pursue higher education and acquire additional skills.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is responding to the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in Germany by cancelling all major events until initially the end of April and limiting business travel or replacing it with digital formats. The measures are designed to protect scholarship holders, participating partners and employees, and to minimise disruption to funding activities.
