Assyrian group launches education scholarship

BEIRUT: Assyrians Without Borders (AWB) announced on Monday its education scholarship program for Assyrians residing in Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. “The importance of education among the Assyrian people in the native country is large,” said Thomas Aydin of AWB. “Unfortunately, this is often not possible because the students have difficulties in financing their studies. That is why Assyrians Without Borders supports Assyrian students studying at the university level with financial assistance.” The scholarships cover the academic year from February 1, 2010, to June 31, 2010. The application can be found on the AWB website. – The Daily Star
