Financial Aid Schemes


Bethlehem University is most grateful to the generous alumni, friends, and benefactors who have kindly contributed funds to the University in support of various forms of financial aid which cover part of the tuition charges for students, such as Endowed Scholarships, Partially Endowed Scholarships, Annual Scholarships, and Semester Scholarships. Students remain responsible for fees, books, and other charges.  These gifts from generous donors support the educational costs of the University, making it possible for the University to provide quality university education to the students. 

University Sponsored Scholarships and Waivers:

  1. Martyrs Scholarship: The University offers scholarships to the children of martyrs enrolled at the University provided they meet the financial aid academic requirements.  The Ministry of Social Affairs provides documentation supporting a martyr’s status. This scholarship is given unless the semester GPA falls below 2.00.
  2. Tawjihi Scholarship: The Ministry of Education and Higher Education chooses 10 students from the highest Tawjihi score achievers admitted to the University on an annual basis.
