A question for you: academic programs for Palestinian scholars?

Dear readers,

This post is actually a question for you — maybe you will be able to provide some insight as I try to assist a friend in her goal of pursuing her Master’s degree in the USA. From Nablus, she is an accomplished writer (in both Arabic and English) and very gifted in the humanities. She’s also dedicated to improving the lives of Palestinians through peace and understanding – something not just the region, but the entire world – could use more of.

If you have thoughts or information about US-based universities (or nonprofits, NGOs and even government-affiliated entities) offering scholarships, grants or fellowships for young women like her, please drop me a note in the comments section below. If you include your email address in the field provided, it won’ t be published – but I can see it and will respond.
