Public Institutions

Kiron’s mission to provide refugees with access to higher education depends significantly on support from and collaborations with the public sector. We have received generous support from ministries and agencies in several European countries, including the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) as well as the UK Department for International Development (DFID). This has enabled us to advance our mission of opening up higher education to refugees and supporting their integration into the societies and economies of their new host countries.

Kiron’s model offers innovative approaches to helping refugees access higher education, which can be of great value to governments. By supporting our work, public institutions can contribute to strengthening all aspects of our solution and gain valuable insight into the paths that newly arrived students follow in higher education, including all associated challenges and opportunities. Together, we can help refugee students gain access to higher education, successfully integrate into the job market and have a positive impact in their new home countries.
