The Anthology/Support the Work

The Palestinian Youth Movement’s Ghassan Kanafani Writing Scholarship is open to Palestinian residents and citizens of the United States who are aged 18-25.

Each year, the contribution of prize money to the top three submissions is intended for their educational expenses in order to propagate their paths of inquiry and creativity.

The scholarship is the first of its kind in the United States. By awarding these scholarships and compiling an anthology of our top twenty submissions, we aim to provide a space for Palestinians in the diaspora to reflect on their Palestinian identities, positionality, and relationships to Palestine.

We are raising funds to help support the continuation of the scholarship initiative. 

You can contribute in 2 ways:

  1. Purchase an anthology (either in digital or printed format)
  2. Donate below (without receiving the anthology)

This is a completely grassroots initiative, so all funds will go directly to the scholarship awards and expansion of this initiative for years to come.

Please consider contributing to this cause and sharing with all of your networks and friends.
