Scholarship Fund – Education Aid For Palestinians (EAP)

Scholarship fund is a unique project which offers full university scholarships for the needy Palestinian students in the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan and Lebanon. We aim to provide everyone, particularly the needy and underprivileged individuals with an educational opportunity that will change the course of their future.

EAP scholarship is a long-term project which provides full university scholarship for the needy Palestinian students in Gaza, West bank, Lebanon and Jordan. And this is no stranger, as EAP focuses its efforts on holistic development and the longevity of the Palestinian community instead of emergency appeals.

Only a third of the Palestinian population is in the educational system, and the poverty rate in the Gaza Strip has reached 38.8% which prevents a lot of students from joining university and have a career, according to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics.

Since education is the solution to poverty and the prerequisites to building a thriving, self-sufficient society, at EAP we aim to help needy undergraduates complete their studies by paying off their tuition fees.

We invest in the future by teaching Palestinians how to fish, rather than handing them a fish.

How we are selecting our beneficiaries?

  1. Members from the university, the Student Affairs Department or our local committee select poor students or students whom are unable to pay off their loans.
  2. Field visits to the nominated/prospective beneficiaries.
  3. Evaluate the economic status of each beneficiary and prepare reports for the education committee.
  4. The education committee evaluates and discusses the recommendation of the social employee, then decides.
  5. The evaluation of each student and beneficiaries is repeated annually.
