Supports Palestinian university students in disadvantaged communities and refugee camps studying at local universities;
Empowers students through a comprehensive social-responsibility and parallel training program to enhance and upgrade their skills;
Provides financial support to the most excelling students and most in need.
Ajyal's Philosophy - To be a support provider not only a receiver!
We aim to create and enrich a deep sense of dignity, social responsibility and volunteering through community projects designed and implemented by our students. Your donation will have a snow-ball effect as it will support not only to the student you sponsor but dozens from his/her local community.
Selection of Students
Ajyal selects the most deserving scholars through a rigorous and transparent process that is detailed below.
$3,200 sponsors a student for an entire academic year
$3,200 covers annual tuition fees, living stipend, community projects and a rich annual training and capacity building programme.
Over 13 million Palestinians live in Palestine and the neighboring countries.
5.9 million live in poverty-ridden refugee camps.
A high percentage of them suffer poverty regardless of where they live.
According to UNESCO, every $1 invested in education equals $10-15 in economic growth.
With no resources to rely on, human capital remains key for alleviating poverty and socio-economic conditions facing Palestinian communities, so why not join us in this life changing journey and power a brighter future!
When selecting students for the scholarship, the Programme will take the following into account:
Academic achievements of the applicant;
Overall income of the family;
Number of siblings (and ages) and other dependants on family income;
Other siblings studying at university level;
Any special circumstances that affect family income and its overall welfare;
Course of study
Application and selection The applications of eligible applicants will be reviewed by a Selection Committee made of 5 members. Short-listed students will be invited for an interview conducted by three members of the selection committee, after which a decision will be made regarding the successful applicants.
