Qatar De­vel­op­ment Fund (QDF) an­nounced the QatarLink Schol­ar­ship pro­gramme, worth one mil­lion Canadian Dol­lars, aimed at sup­port­ing Syr­ian refugees in Canada. QDF said in a state­ment that the ini­tia­tive comes as part of Qatar's pledge made dur­ing the Syria Donors Con­fer­ence held in Lon­don in Fe­bru­ary to pro­vide $100 mil­lion for Syr­ian refugees. The pro­gramme will help Syr­ian refugees re­sid­ing in Canada to earn nec­es­sary skills that will pave the way for a se­cure and sta­ble fu­ture for them and their fam­i­lies. The aca­demic and train­ing ac­tiv­i­ties to be pro­vided by the pro­gramme will play a key role in hu­man de­vel­op­ment process for the Syr­ian refugees, the state­ment said.
