The Running Refugees

The Refugee Life Foundation and Moraine Valley Community College are proud to present The Amir Darwish Scholarship For Refugees. Amir Darwish was a community organizer, philanthropist, and activist. He also believed that education should be accessible for everyone, including marginalized communities. Through fundraising efforts of our first ever Humanity 5k, we are happy to announce that all proceeds will be going to help refugee students on their path to success. Refugee students enrolled at MVCC are now eligible to apply for a scholarship up to $5,000. The application deadline is July 31st, 2023. Scan the QR code or click on the following link to apply!
