Building on our successful fundraising campaigns that supported Ukrainian and Iranian students in 2022 and 2023, we are introducing a project-based initiative in response to the Gaza-Israel conflict and in support of an immediate ceasefire. We are granting two joint scholarships to two applicants with Palestinian and Israeli backgrounds. They will collaborate on two research projects involving our existing academic programs. Your support will also transform these scholarships into a recurring opportunity at The New Centre for applicants who have been displaced by war or economic and environmental crises. To help us fund this initiative, please donate to our campaign.
