The Jury Statement:

Candidates have displayed exceptional qualifications, creativity, motivation, and a resolute determination to excel, that is why the committee faced an arduous task in selecting the recipients of this support. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the winners while also conveying our best wishes to those who, unfortunately, did not get the opportunity to receive the grant. We remain hopeful that future opportunities will present themselves, enabling these gifted individuals to continue their creative pursuits and rightfully claim their place in the vibrant landscape of contemporary art and culture.

This new framework of the Ajyal Programme services aims to increase opportunities for knowledge and academic support in the Syrian artistic scene, by providing two grants annually, each of 4800 Euros, for those wishing to pursue postgraduate studies. In addition to supporting the development of linguistic skills.
This component was added based on the recommendations of Ettijahat’s first ten-year evaluation, which emphasized the importance of designing additional responses to the cultural scene in Syria, and as a result of a cooperation agreement signed with the Saint-Joseph University of Beirut in 2022.
