20 scholarships offered to new bachelor’s students in science majors

Twenty scholarship opportunities are available for new students who enroll in Birzeit University’s Faculty of Science for the 2022–2023 academic year.

The scholarships will cover full tuition fees and are available to students who enroll in one of the bachelor’s degree programs offered by the faculty’s four departments: physics, mathematics, chemistry, and biology and biochemistry. “Five students will be awarded scholarships in each department based on their academic-merit,” explained Wafaa Khater, dean of the Faculty of Science.

“Each year, the Faculty of Science offers various scholarship opportunities for new students,” continued Khater. “These scholarships aim to increase the number of students in science, physics, chemistry, and mathematics, to ensure a steady flow in the dwindling pipeline of science and mathematics student enrollment rates.”

In the 2021–2022 academic year, over 45% of Birzeit University’s students were awarded scholarships in the form of full or partial aid.
