2021 news Comments Off on DSMT awards a final Higher Education scholarship

After the commitments to Dar Al Tifl School were met DSMT still had the resources to award a final HE scholarship.  Awarded in line with DSMT’s usual criteria of academic ability and economic need the scholarship will be administered over the next four years by UK Charity Friends of Birzeit University whose objectives closely align with DSMT’s.  We are pleased to introduce the worthy award winner, Rima, through her own words.

Meet DSMT’s final HE student

“I am the student Rima. I am 18 years old. I live in the Ramallah governorate near Birzeit University. My father died in 2008. I was five years old at the time… I studied at Abu Shkhaydam Girls’ Secondary School and I have beautiful memories of it. …My hobby was photography, especially landscapes because Palestine is a very beautiful area that I think needs documentation. Now I am moving to another, different life, at Birzeit University, which I was looking at from the window of my room and dreaming of studying there, and I wish to major in public administration because administration in general is important to public life, and it manages people’s lives and there are different fields of employment. ….

After my high school success and obtaining an average of 89.7%, I was afraid that my family would not be able to afford the costs of studying. This scholarship for me is my hope and my future of achieving my dream to complete my studies without fear. I revived in my soul the hope to achieve my dreams, my mother and I could not be happier for this support, which arrived at the right time.”
