Give Yara Eid the dream she's been waiting for.
She grew up in a refugee camp in Gaza, called Al-Bureij, to the constant sound of bombs and war on every street, living with constant fear.
Determined to survive and make a change she planned her way out of Gaza. By constantly studying and applying for as many grants as possible she got her break, and in 2016 was granted a full scholarship by Cogito Scholarship Foundation to attend the United World College of the Atlantic in Wales.
After two years of an eye opening college education, she dreamed of becoming a global peace ambassador to use international influence in achieving peace. And to achieve that dream she needs support to attend university this autumn.
Due to the situation in Gaza and her parents financial differences to the UK’s educational costs, she is unable to cover the costs of her degree and accommodation.
Being able to achieve an undergraduate degree in IR and politics would enable her to pursue her dream, by enabling her to start working after she graduates in a humanitarian field and change the sad reality that Palestinians are living through.
Her two top choices are SOAS and Edinburgh: Tuition fees for one year at SOAS is £16,907 and at Edinburgh is £18,800.
The current guidelines in living costs can vary between £11000-16000 per year. She will also have to take into account the visa costs as well as transportation and books etc.
*She has been accepted to some of the top universities in the UK: The School of African and Oriental Studies (SOAS), Edinburgh, Warwick and King's College London to study International Relations and Politics.
