The ISOW Scholarship

The ISOW Scholarship covers living costs and tuition for the duration of an undergraduate or graduate program at Laurier. Currently, ISOW does not receive applications for scholarships. However, if you are interested in the scholarship program and believe that you would qualify for an ISOW scholarship at Laurier, please visit our partner organizations’ websites for applications. If you are selected through our partner organization, you will then be put into contact with us for a separate application process.


ISOW partners with organizations to locate and financially support Scholars. At present, ISOW is partnered with the Daughters for Life Foundation, The Iraqi and Syrian Student Project, Jusoor Syria, and Wilfrid Laurier University.
