UAF and the Erasmus Education Fund
The UAF works closely with all kinds of schools and education centres when it comes to the support of refugee students. Forty percent of the three thousand refugee students who are supported by the UAF, study at an academic level. Approximately fifty of them are currently studying at Erasmus University. However, there are still four hundred refugees on a waiting list.
The Foundation for Refugee Students (UAF) provides financial and other support to refugees and asylum seekers who plan to study in the Netherlands. This support consists of:
- Scholarships and contributions towards the costs of the preparation and of the studies.
- Individual advice and guidance by student counsellors
- Support to graduated UAF clients in finding a job
- Advice to governmental and educational institutions about suitable paths for higher educated refugees
