The Hope Fund provides talented, underserved Palestinian youth who possess leadership potential with an opportunity to pursue an undergraduate degree at an American or American-style college or university. The Fund guides students through the application process, assisting with the selection of schools, registering for tests, etc. It targets underserved Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. The Hope Fund is highly selective and open only to Palestinian students with demonstrated financial need. Students must have high grades and strong test scores in order to qualify for a scholarship, as all scholarships are awarded by colleges and universities, not the Hope Fund. Scholarships are not guaranteed, since the financial aid decisions are made exclusively by the schools and not the Fund.
