Scholarship Process

The Bseisu Foundation strives to support young people across the Levant, by providing and facilitating opportunities for higher education in the UK and US.

Established in 2005, The Bseisu Foundation Scholarship Programme supports individuals who display passion and commitment to their studies. Intended for those unable to afford full-time study abroad, we seek talented people and provide them with financial support in order to maximise their educational experience.

Our mission is to educate and empower individuals in our target countries of Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria. By investing in these transformative experiences of education, we feel that our mission is truly accomplished.


Scholarship Strands

Scholarships are primarily offered for one-year postgraduate courses in the US and UK. However, students applying for undergraduate study may still be considered.

Please note the application form will not become available until The Bseisu Scholarship application process is live (around September).


1. Partner UniversitIES

The Amjad & Suha Bseisu Foundation works with several universities offering scholarships in the UK for students studying STEM subjects. Students apply directly to our partner universities for a STEM course, stating the need for financial aid in their application. If accepted for a STEM course by the university and you meet all the eligibility requirements, you will be put forward by the university for a Bseisu Scholarship.


The Amjad & Suha Bseisu Foundation works in partnership with organisations such as AMIDEAST, The Gaza Scholarship Scheme and LIFE Lebanon. These organisations allow us to connect and identify exceptional students across the Middle East, providing scholarships for university placements around the world.  

3. STEM Bseisu Scholarship

The Amjad & Suha Bseisu Foundation offers a scholarship each year to students that have been accepted to a STEM post-graduate course at a university in the UK. Before applying for the Annual Bseisu Scholarship, students must obtain an unconditional offer from a UK university in a STEM post-graduate course and meet all eligibility criteria of the Foundation. In addition, applicants must apply with a sponsoring individual or organisation that has already agreed and is willing to contribute the tuition fees of their course.

“I would advise all future students searching for a scholarship opportunity to not lose hope, keep trying until you reach your dreams. There are many difficult dreams to achieve, but none are impossible!”
