The John Aves Education Project seeks the advancement of education for the public benefit by offering undergraduate grants to the disadvantaged young people from Dheisheh Palestinian Refugee Camp and its vicinity in Bethlehem who demonstrate academic and community achievements but whose financial and social situation hinders them from pursuing undergraduate study within Palestinian universities. From 2007 to December 2020 we have raised £417893 and funded 57 young people which has enabled them to achieve an undergraduate degree.

Our Approach

We provide scholarships to bright and disadvantaged young people to fulfil their potential and continue their education in their own communities. - The Project works with universities in the Holy Land to identify deserving students from Dheisheh Refugee Camp capable of making a positive impact. - We continue to develop our links with other communities in the Holy Land to ensure we identify the most appropriate students. Students are selected on their merits, tutor's references, and their contribution to their communities through voluntary work.
