Impact of legacy on number of young people we can fund from September 2019

JAEP is currently reviewing applications from the young people of Dheisheh to study for an undergraduate degree from September 2019.
We have received a record number of applications.

Receiving a legacy in April 2019 means we can:

fund more students for the next academic year
increase the amount of funding for the more expensive courses, i.e. Medicine and Dentistry increase finding from $3000 to $6000
increase the number of local universities we work with
