Become a Fobzu Friend

Fobzu was founded out of friendship. Since 1978, we’ve been standing side by side with Palestinian higher education, supporting students and faculty under occupation and in exile. Through our scholarships, linking projects, awareness raising and more, we work in the UK to ensure that Palestinians teaching and learning in tough conditions don’t stand alone.

Join us in marking 45 years of solidarity with Palestinian students and academics
