Graduate Institute 2019/2020 Refugee Scholarship Awarded to Maiwen Dot Pheot Ngalueth

Originally from South Sudan, Maiwen came to Switzerland with his family as the political environment in his home country made normal life impossible. Having already spent nearly a decade working in the humanitarian sector, Maiwen is now undertaking his Master in International Affairs. 

The Refugee Scholarship is funded by the Institute and was created in partnership with the Graduate Institute Student Association’s Migration Initiative out of a deep concern for the magnitude of the migratory crisis and the fate of tens of thousands of people in war zones seeking refuge in countries like Switzerland.
