Description

Deepanshu Singh said he didn’t have a program like Refuge when he moved to the United States from India in 2012 as a high school freshman. Singh, a third-year in biology, said he was lucky enough to have guidance counselors and friends to help him learn about the U.S. college experience and application process. However, many immigrants and refugees are not as fortunate as Singh was. Refuge, a nonprofit organization, was founded on Ohio State’s campus in 2016 to provide guidance to high school-aged refugees and immigrants in their pursuit of higher education.
