The Odysseus Academic Network has started a fundraising campaign to allow refugees to participate in the upcoming 2016 Summer School on EU Immigration and Asylum Law and Policy in Brussels. The Summer School aims to provide participants with a deep understanding of the immigration and asylum policy of the European Union.

This year, the network wants to welcome around 20 refugee students to further their education and foster their integration into Europe. The crowdfunding campaign aims to have at least one scholarship funded by the public. The minimum amount to be raised is 1,500€, calculated as necessary to cover transportation, daily expenses and a part of the tuition fee.
