Scholarship Fund – Educational 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.
Only a third of the Palestinian population is in the educational system and the illiteracy rate is not exceeding 3.7% for the Palestinians aged 15+ years in 2013. However, 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 bedrock to building a thriving, self-sufficient society, we are working to provide the opportunity for the needy undergraduates to go forward in their studies as we pay off their tuition fees.
This project aims to help the next generations receive the required support in their educational journeys. Since the support offered to Palestinian youth is not merely restricted to emergency appeals, but more so in their holistic development and contribution the community.
We invest in the future by teaching Palestinians how to fish, rather than handing them a fish.
