IIE partners with Kaplan to provide prep for Syrian students in crisis.

Syria, October 31, 2013 - Kaplan Test Prep International has partnered with the Institute for International Education to help students “in crisis”- such as refugees displaced by war or other calamities - pursue higher educational opportunities outside their own countries. As part of this alliance, Kaplan is offering free access to 500 online prep courses so students in crisis can gain admission to college or graduate school programs. The immediate beneficiaries will be students from Syria, suffering through a two-year civil war, thanks to a joint effort between IIE and the Clinton Global Initiative, former President Bill Clinton’s non-profit organization.
