The Ideal Scholar:

Reach Education Fund aids eligible Palestinian high school students in the West Bank and Gaza who possess:

  • The remarkable strength of character;
  • The passion to succeed;
  • The willingness to work hard;
  • The commitment to give back to their community;
  • The readiness to contribute to their communities, society and humanity as a whole.

REF applicants go through a thorough application, interview and selection process. The reward of being selected into our program is the opportunity to obtain a four-six year college education [depending on the program], complete with financial and personal support throughout their college experience. Along with the scholarship, Reach provides mentorship, guidance and support to set up our students for success. We also aid in building lifelong relationships that will aid the students with the resources needed for internships, job placement, career counseling and much more. Our mission is to work hand in hand with students to accelerate their success.

Applicants must excel academically by attaining a minimum high school (Tawjihi) GPA of 95% or higher and maintain a GPA of 85% or higher throughout their college experience. Students must also possess exceptional leadership skills, participate community service activities and demonstrate financial need. As much as we would love to help every student excel their education, our focus is on students who are truly in need of these scholarships. After the declaration of the Tawjihi grades, candidates are selected by our representatives based on their application, interview and participation in local activities.
