The Program for International Education and Social Change (PIESC)The extreme indignity and ruthlessness that define our times call for a new and resolute generation of citizens who are committed to initiate change – idealistic and impactful change that is targeted toward increasing the communal well-being instead of the individual being well-off.
In 2015 Bard College Berlin established the Program for International Education and Social Change (PIESC), a scholarship program that is aimed at young, promising, strong-willed individuals from regions of crisis or conflict. Over the past three academic years, 32 four-year scholarships were awarded to Syrian, Iraqi, Afghan, Palestinian, Greek, Brazilian and Eritrean students who will become much-needed change agents internationally and/or in their home countries.
