Study with us
Jointly funded by the Saïd Foundation and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European & International Trust
This studentship, open to Palestinians, is for a one year post-graduate course at the University of Cambridge, as a student member of Churchill College. The aim is to develop an individual's expertise so that subsequently they may help improve future governance and economic development in Palestine. Participants will have the opportunity afforded to all Cambridge students to broaden their views and perspectives of the world.
Applicants will be Palestinian residing in the West Bank, Gaza or East Jerusalem. There will be no maximum age and applicants may be male or female. They will be required to explain how their course of study will help them make a greater contribution to Palestinian society, with the expectation that they will return to Palestine after completing their course.
Applicants will have to be accepted for the course of their choice at the University of Cambridge. Requirements include holding a good first degree and proficiency in English.
The studentship will pay all university and college fees together with a substantial allowance towards living costs.
