On 16 February 2012, BZU honored Ali and Hatem Johar for their contribution to support students. The event was attended by BZU President, Dr. Khalil Hindi; Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Adnan Yahya; Vice President for Administrative and Financial Affairs, Dr. Adel Zagha; Acting Dean of Student Affairs, Mohammed Al-Ahmed; and Deputy Director of Public Relations, Lubna Abdel-Hadi.





The attendees emphasized the importance of the relationship between BZU and the donors in supporting the academic development of the university.


The Johar family’s grant has provided a number of students in financial need with support since the second semester of 2005. The Financial Aid Office at the Deanship of Student Affairs prepares a list of students, and the donors select five students.  The grant covers student tuition fees of 500 USD per semester and continues through the students’ graduation, provided that the student maintains a minimum average of 70%.


Dr. Hindi expressed his gratitude to the Johar family and discussed ways of extending support to BZU, calling on donors to support BZU and its students.



Ali Johar applauded BZU’s role in building Palestinian society, through the provision of qualified students. He highlighted the role of business people in community service, concluding that his family’s support to BZU is a national commitment.


Dr. Hindi presented a special commemorative plaque, while the Public Relations Office screened a film about BZU’s history and facilities.
