Scholarships are awarded to undergraduate students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds and show great academic merit

Birzeit University believes that every student has the right to education. With your help, we aim to offer an educational opportunity to everyone, particularly distinguished students who cannot afford educational fees, contributing to an inclusive knowledge environment that stimulates creativity and entrepreneurship and contribute significantly to our ability to provide quality education that is affordable for all students, and meet their aspirations. 

How to Support


Merit-based Scholarships 

Birzeit University offers a number of merit-based scholarships for students who demonstrate academic excellence. Around 1,000 scholarships per semester awarded annually in an estimated budget amounting to $1 million, accomplished by the generosity of our donors. 

Scholarships provide means for students with academic excellence to earn a degree at Birzeit University. For many young Palestinians, receiving a scholarship is a huge achievement and can be a determining point on whether or not they will pursue their education despite their financial background. Besides, a great number of students with promising futures and impressive records are their families’ only asset.

Need-based Scholarships 

Birzeit University is committed to offer various need-based scholarships. Students, whose parents are unable to afford full cost of university education, are on top of our priorities to support. Over 3000 students apply for financial aid every year, which costs the university $6.6 million. We are currently collecting donations to support this program in a total of $4 million.
