Chuol Ruei Deng - from refugee camp to NYU scholar


Amazing news, Chuol Ruei Deng – the young man with the big heart and the massive smile has just been awarded a full four-year scholarship at New York University Abu Dhabi, valued at $300,000 (including fees, campus, flights, international semesters, etc)

In 2013 Chuol left war-stricken South Sudan in order to remain in education. He moved to Gambela and lived in a horrendous refugee camp where he came to the attention of EEF, in 2016 (aged 15). He beat over 200 other candidates to one of our scholarship places and ever since has been an OUTSTANDING member of our family.  

Chuol touches everyone he meets and he clearly proved this again when NYU admission staff selected him during last week’s candidate weekend … Chuol is living proof that dreams can come true…
