SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

The ISOW Scholarship provides full funding to international students whose lives have been disrupted by violent conflict at home.

To realize its vision, the ISOW student club works with the University to formally partner with educational non-governmental organizations to locate and support future Scholars. Through these Scholarships, both undergraduate and graduate students from around the world will have an equal opportunity to obtain an education and develop important skills that they can apply upon return to their home countries.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

ISOW’s mission includes engaging Laurier students on the impact of international conflicts to promote intercultural learning and globally engaged citizenship.

We hope that by hosting events which focus on the celebration of international cultures and the realities experienced faced by people who live in the midst of international conflict that Laurier students and the broader community will develop deeper intercultural understanding.
