Sponsor a Student

A personal way to support Palestinian education

 

From £1850 per year

Fobzu scholarships support Palestinian university students in financial need.  For just £1850 you could enable us to provide a year’s scholarship for a student at Birzeit University or in Gaza.  While we hope you will consider continuing to sponsor your student throughout their course, there is no obligation to sponsor for more than one year.

Stay Connected

We'll pair you with a student, and if you have any specific criteria about the student you'd like to sponsor we can take this into account. Each year you'll receive two personal written or video statements from your student, and updates on their academic progress.

Support students in occupied Palestine

Through this donation you’ll help give Palestinian students living under occupation and in financial need the opportunity to go to university.

This not only provides students with a life changing opportunity, it’s also an investment in Palestine’s future.

The wall confiscated half the land of our village and in the struggle against the occupation my family has suffered a lot. My father and brother have spent years in Israeli prisons and family members have been injured in the weekly demonstrations against the wall. I was close to giving up my studies in the absence of my father and brother but thanks to the scholarship a weight was lifted from my shoulders and I can continue without fear or insecurity.

I am from Qalandia Refugee Camp. Like everyone in the camp, my family are refugees and therefore have very little resources. Since my father passed away when I was 14 and I have a large family (three sisters and one brother), our financial situation is tough.  I am looking forward to graduating. I am very excited to join the work force so that I can prove my worth as an independent woman and help support my family. This scholarship means so much to me because it was my only hope to complete my studies in light of the family’s financial situation.

Your generosity in supporting the right to education can be life changing for young Palestinians

You can help students like Sajeda overcome barriers

Donate to the Fobzu Winter Appeal

Palestinian students like Sajeda face enormous
obstacles to fulfilling their potential. Occupation,
blockade and exile hold back the whole of Palestinian
society. Covid has further exacerbated the situation.

A gift from you could help a student in financial need
achieve their dream of going to university and spread
hope in Palestine during dark times.

This scholarship means a lot to me, it lightens the financial
burden on my mother. I will make sure to do my best to get the
highest marks in order to deserve this scholarship.
