On 26 March 2012, BZU signed an agreement with the Palestinian Telecommunication Group (Paltel) for a grant to cover scholarships for BZU faculty members who seek their doctoral degrees from renowned international universities.

The signing ceremony was attended by BZU President, Dr. Khalil Hindi; Paltel CEO, Mr. Ammar Aker; and Assistant Deputy Minister for Higher Education, Dr. Fahoum Shalaby.



Dr. Hindi thanked Paltel for supporting higher education. He noted: "Undoubtedly capacity building of the teaching and research staff is a critical factor in academic development, as we are keen to maintain the highest ratio of students to teachers who hold doctoral degrees among the Palestinian universities. This requires continuous faculty development, particularly in the form of doctoral studies, as PhDs have become increasingly necessary credentials for teaching at university level."

Dr. Shalaby commended the partnership between higher education institutions and the Palestinian private sector. He thanked Paltel for assuming social responsibility.

Mr. Aker underscored the continuous cooperation between Paltel and BZU, stressing that Paltel has prioritized the support of education as a tool for achieving liberation and state building.

The duration of the Paltel grant is for a period of five years, aiming at the academic development of BZU teaching staff and students.
