Kiron is a nonprofit providing access to higher education for refugees through scalable digital technology and strategic partnerships with universities and online education providers. At Kiron, we empower our students to make self-determined choices about their future and academic careers, enabling an identity shift from refugee to student. Kiron’s integrated program consists of tailor-made curricula, a digital collaborative platform and an extensive range of supportive services that enable refugees to begin their studies online while they work towards fulfilling formal requirements to apply to a partner university. Once students fulfill the requirements, Kiron assists them in applying to a partner university in order to continue studying offline towards an accredited bachelor’s degree.
