India-Palestine Education Linkages

India has consistently contributed to Palestine's efforts to provide quality education to its youth. Over the years, around 12,000 Palestinian students have graduated from Indian Universities, a large number of them on the scholarships offered by the Government of India. These students serve as bridge between the two countries.

Indian universities continue to attract Palestinian students. Every year India offers 50 scholarships to Palestinian students.

India has built (i) Jawaharlal Nehru Library at the Al Azhar University in Gaza city; and (ii) Mahatma Gandhi Library-cum-Student Activity Centre at the Palestine Technical College at Deir Al Balah in Gaza. In 2015, India built two schools; Jawaharlal Nehru Secondary School for Boys in Abu Dees and Jawaharlal Nehru Secondary School for Girls in Asira Al-Shamaliya, at a cost of US $1.8 million.

Responding to the requirement of developing the nascent Information Technology sector in Palestine, Government of India has set up an India-Palestine Centre for Excellence in ICT & Digital Learning & Innovation Centre in Al-Quds University, Abu Dees. The Centre will also have a satellite centre in Ramallah. Similarly, to assist Palestine in its efforts to introduce vocational education in its school curriculum, India committed to set up 7 vocational training centres in Palestine and has completed the Phase I of the programme by setting up of equipment and training to Vocational Training Centre (VTC) in Yatta and Palestine Polytechnic University (PPU) in Hebron.

India also supports research cooperation between BirZeit University in Ramallah and Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi. During the State visit of Shri Pranab Mukherjee, Hon’ble President of India to Palestine in October 2015, 5 MOUs for academic and research cooperation were signed between Indian and Palestinian universities.
