Scholarship Program Cost-Benefit Analysis Consultant

Project Summary:

Since 2012 Jusoor has awarded 277 scholarships and enabled over 600 scholars to attend universities in 21 countries. The Scholarship Program maintains partnerships with universities such as McGill, Columbia, Cambridge, Wilfred Laurier and Oxford. The goal of the Scholarship Program is to provide Syrian students with the opportunity to realize their full potential and contribute to both their host communities and the reconstruction of Syria. 

Though the program has a 97% retention rate and is growing, there is a gap in understanding the short and long-term impacts of the program. To establish best practices and make improvements, we must have a holistic understanding of our partnerships, acknowledge higher education and employment prospects for Jusoor alumni and assess whether alumni are giving back to Syria and Jusoor. This information will allow us to determine which aspects of the program are helping us to achieve our goals and which need to be improved. 

Research Aim and Objectives:

The goal of this project is to evaluate the impact of the Scholarship Program, establish good practices and recommend methods to improve. Both short and long term impacts will be recognized and evaluated. 

Scope of Work:

  • Work with the Scholarship Program Manager to develop evaluation tools.
  • Collect data through the use of surveys, focus groups and Scholarship Program documents.
  • Oversee the input and organization of data.    
  • Write a findings report analyzing the data and outlining good practices, areas for improvement, and recommendations.
