2017-19 school scholarship girls

In 2017 DSMT funded an additional scholarship as a result of the generosity of people who supported Francesca’s very impressive London Marathon run.

Thank you everyone. Your contributions have made a real difference to the lives of these girls.

All four girls who received scholarships in 2017: Aya, Bara’a, Muna and Layan, did extremely well in their Tawjihi exams last summer and they have all continued onto higher education.  We understand that Bara’a, Layan and Muna are taking a preparatory year at the Hebrew University  on scholarships before commencing their degree courses.  Aya has been accepted to study medicine at Al-Quds.  We wish them well in their chosen exit routes.

Aya achieved the grades she needed with an amazing Tawjihi score of 97.4

monaMuna:  “I would like to thank you for the chance you have given me.  My school results were very good and I am satisfied…  I am not sure if I want to study law or translation yet…I really think that this scholarship will help me a lot for the future.”  Muna excelled her own hopes with a brilliant Tawjihi score of 95.7


layanLayan: “I am writing to thank you for the scholarship. You gave me such a great opportunity to study in an excellent school and I really appreciate it a lot… I hope one day I will be able to help students just as you have helped me”.  After her preparatory year at the Hebrew University, Layan hopes to study Pharmacy. With her Tawjihi score of 90.1 she is should secure a place.


Congratulations to the four girls on their brilliant achievements! We wish them all the best for the future.
