Cost per beneficiary: The project provides one time $1000 scholarships to students OR Full tuitions for others "about $6000 a year".
Most of the beneficiaries face financial difficulties and are Zakat eligible. Candidates for Zakat donations need to fulfill two major criteria: proof of financial hardship and average to excellent academic progress. PAMA adopts a rigorous process to verify the authenticity of the financial hardship, this includes consultation with University officials, calling references and consulting with PAMA representatives in Palestine. PAMA pays off all the administrative fees so your Zakat or donation will be delivered dollar for dollar. Students fill in the PAMA Education Fund application form and provide the needed supportive documents. PAMA will then review all applications and coordinates with university officials to choose the final beneficiaries. PAMA will then deposit your donation directly into the university accounts of the beneficiaries rather than handing cash money to students. You have secured the fund for 156 scholarships, 100 of which in 2018. These scholarships benefit medical students in Gaza and the West Bank. The impact of these scholarships on the students and their families is huge as described by the students themselves.
Please review Student feedback to see the impact your donation will have on them and their families.
*PAMA will do its best to use your donation for your project of choice, however in certain times PAMA might use it where it’s needed the most
