Dar Al Tifl Scholarships


To mark our 10th anniversary in 2015, we had a concerted fund-raising drive to secure the future of our two scholarship programmes with the Dar Al Tifl School, East Jerusalem for at least the next five years.

School Scholarship Programme

The DSMT School Scholarship Programme aims to fund at least three scholarships annually to cover all education and living costs for able but disadvantaged girls to complete 11th and 12th grade and take the national tawjihi examinations at age eighteen. The new scholarships awarded in 2018 bring the overall total since 2007 to forty school scholarships, an impressive number.

In recent years the school has selected four or five girls to receive DSMT school scholarships and by 2019 forty-five girls had benefitted. Six girls have been chosen to receive scholarships  In 2020 and 2021 (12 girls), bringing the overall total awarded since 2007 to fifty-seven, an impressive number. Of these 40 girls have now completed their schooling and seventeen are currently at school in grades 10, 11 and 12.

As part of DSMT’s final donations to Dar Al Tifl, a memorial plaque made from traditional Palestinian pottery has been designed for display at the school.  This will be constructed shortly, showing the names of all the girls who have received DSMT scholarships and we hope to have photos at some point.

Higher Education Scholarship Programme

The DSMT Higher Education Scholarship Programme has aimed to fund at least one scholarship annually to cover fees for a former pupil of Dar Al Tifl School to study for a four-year undergraduate degree at a Palestinian university, who might otherwise be unable to take advantage of a university education and the opportunities this offers.
