Forced Migration

Over the years, Columbia Global Centers | Amman has become a hub on forced migration and displacement at both an academic and policy level.
The Center has deepened engagement with local partners, international organizations, regional universities, and the Jordanian government to facilitate knowledge exchange between academia and practitioners.
Through a multidisciplinary approach and a range of initiatives, we have supported the development of local capacity in research and data collection to address operational agencies’ programming and advocacy needs to inform policy recommendations.

Columbia University Scholarship for Displaced Students

This Scholarship supports displaced students from anywhere in the world who are unable to complete their higher education.

As the first-ever Columbia-wide scholarship, and the world's first scholarship of its kind, this program will commit up to $6 million annually in support, per cohort, for up to 30 students each year, every year.
