An-Najah National University, represented by Dr. Kherieh Rassas, An-Najah’s Vice President for International and External Relations, participated via Zoom platform in the PSSF Annual Luncheon Fundraiser - on Monday, September 26, 2022.
This year the event took place in Chicago, USA and featured renowned businessmen, student PSSF scholarship recipients, international supporters, representatives from Arab American community, members of the United States Congress, community leaders, and academicians.
The charity event which is organized annually by the Palestinian Student Scholarship Fund (PSSF), aims to raise funds to provide Palestinian students the scholarships they need to pursue their higher education.
In short remarks during the fund event, Dr. Rassas said:" It has been an honor for us at An-Najah University to join the PSSF as we started this journey and joined the PSSF network two years ago to bring a bright future to Palestinian youth by enabling them to realize their dreams and complete their higher education."
She added:” Today, with this energy, our universities are expanding their infrastructure and offering quality education that meets the needs of the Palestinian market. We count on every effort that PSSF is exerting to enable students to access education in their countries and within the local universities. We are all together in this, working on different fronts yet connected in making our institutions and people stronger and more responsive. The inspiring experience of the PSSF has certainly helped better the future of Palestinian women and men striving for education.”
It is worth mentioning that PSSF is dedicated to assist disadvantaged Palestinian students in higher education. It was established as a nonprofit organization in 2017 by a group of Palestinian-Americans in Chicago.
The Fund supports Palestinian students who face significant challenges in their pursuit of academic success in higher education including financial burdens, and discrimination.
