INCITE funds project in Syria for $30,000


INCITE has allocated $30,000 in funds to an initiative addressing the Syrian refugee crisis. ASPIRE (Advancing Solutions in Policy, Implementation, Research and Engagement for Refugees) uses a multidisciplinary approach to respond to the issues facing Syrian refugees. These approaches take the form of various research projects in collaboration with Columbia University researchers and partners at other universities, as well as partners at governmental agencies, the UN or NGOs. As a part of ASPIRE’s approach, a consortium bringing together various Columbia University professional schools and opportunities for student engagement will be established.
