Al-Bireh Municipality to provide scholarships, community service opportunities for Birzeit University students

Birzeit University president Dr. Beshara Doumani and a team representing the Student Committee at Al-Bireh Municipality met on November 22, 2021, to discuss ways of strengthening cooperation between the two institutions.

In the meeting, members of the committee stressed the importance of providing more scholarships to financially disadvantaged Birzeit University students. They also discussed engaging students in community service efforts through which they can gain skills and knowledge relevant to their fields and future careers.

Doumani lauded the municipality’s efforts to support Birzeit University and its community, noting that cooperating with local public and civil-society organizations is an integral part of the university’s continuous development as a national institution with a focus on the Palestinian community.

In addition to the scholarships, Al-Bireh Municipality also donated 20 wooden benches placed around the university’s campus.
