Al-Tariq Scholarship Program
Al-Tariq believes that education is an essential part of developing the Palestinian society and that further education will prepare Palestinians for a peaceful future with Israel. However, there are still many roadblocks to higher education in Palestine. Palestinian universities are private institutions and their are limited scholarships for students to study.
In order to serve the needs of the young people, Al-Tariq is creating a scholarship program, entitled “Pioneers”, which will provide scholarships to students who assist elementary or secondary students in their studies. This one-to-one tutorial project will provide students with a partial tuition scholarship in exchange for helping children from socially disadvantaged backgrounds in their studies. By working as tutors, the students will learn how to serve as positive role models, contribute to their society and help children succeed in school and aspire to higher education.
