Windle International Uganda in partnership with World University Services Canada (WUSC) is pilotting Student Refugee Program (SRP) in Uganda. WUSC has worked with Windle in Kenya for over 20 years and to refugees in Uganda, this is yet another opportunity besides DAFI Scholarship for Refugee Youth in Uganda to access Higher Education.

Note that this is a sponsorship Program that comes with an opportunity for refugees between 18-25 Years of age to continue with their Studies as well as re-settle in Canada (SRP Combines Sponsorship with resettlement). We have between 20-30 Scholarship for the first year of implementation and is expected to increase  in the next coming  years.  There is no fixed quota for any settlement, the award and number per refugee location will depend on the individual merit of the candidates.
