Higher Education Scholarship Palestine (HESPAL)

We are currently reviewing the HESPAL scholarships we will be offering from 2018. Further information will be posted on this page in October 2017.

HESPAL is a British Council managed scheme, which offers scholarships to young Palestinian lecturers from universities in the West Bank and Gaza enabling them to study in the UK. HESPAL aims to help create the next generation of senior academics who can maintain international quality standards at Palestinian universities and develop renewed, sustainable links between Palestinian and UK universities.

University of Bristol, in partnership with the HESPAL scheme, will offer 3 PhD scholarships per year for a 4-year period from 2017/18, working with institutions in the West Bank and Gaza.

Scholarships in 2017/18 (each to start in October 2017)

Please note that the key contact listed above would not necessarily supervise the relevant PhD but is suggested as a first point of contact for potential applicants for each scholarship and will be able to advise on potential supervisors.
