  • Impact

    Impact

    Students will be able to challenge and explain the misperceptions on Israel and the Middle East at their campuses with a view to improving the current climate of animosity.

    Risk

    There is a risk that students will not fulfil their commitment. We will deal with this risk by interviewing the candidates and by seeking their approval by their universities.

    Reporting

    Donors will receive a report once we have selected the candidates to let them know who has received a scholarship, this will be followed up by a report from the candidate.
