Cardinal Commitment

Stanford Refugee Research Project (SRRP)

Multi-quarter part-time
Human Rights

The Stanford Refugee Research Project is a project funded by President Marc Tessier-Lavigne and Dean Lloyd Minor (Medicine) to examine the role of Stanford in the refugee crisis, particularly in the Middle East. 

The Stanford Refugee Research Project will partner with the Syrian Youth Empowerment (SYE), an organization, to match Stanford students (undergrad, grad) with high-schoolers within Syria who need academic support and mentorship through the process of applying to universities outside of Syria. Stanford students, through SYE, will provide a one-year commitment and provide mentorship through essay writing, financial aid, etc.

This opportunity calls for Stanford students to engage directly with high-school students who wouldn't otherwise have the mentorship they need to go overseas and pursue a university education. These students are particularly vulnerable, living in a war-torn country.
