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.
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.

Where will your sponsorship donation go?
Your donation will go towards Fobzu’s work supporting Palestinian access to education. With your help we will be able to provide scholarships to Palestinian students in financial need, continue building links between Palestinian and UK higher education and raise awareness in the UK about the experience of Palestinian students and academics.
