What is AES?

AES is a scholarships-initiative started by Syrian academics and professionals in Germany and around the globe, who feel the responsibility to pass the academic chance they got to other students struggling to get an opportunity to complete their higher education

AES is part of the German-Syrian Research Society (DSFG e.V.). We believe that each person has the right to get decent education. Higher education represents a catalyst and an agent of change and development for individuals and societies.

  • The initiative is based on the conviction that investing in individuals is essential in order to equip them with the right tools to face the challenges of Syria’s and Germany’s future.
  • AES is open to all Syrians regardless of political views, religions, ethnicities or genders.
