Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Biden Administration Reinstates $235 Million in Aid to Palestinians

The Biden administration has reinstated some aid to the Palestinians. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced Wednesday said that the US will provide $235 million in aid to the Palestinians, including $150 million funneled through the United Nations refugee relief agency, the UNRWA; $75 million in economic and development assistance; and $10 million for peace-building programs.

Blinken also reiterated the US priority “to advance toward a negotiated two-state solution.”

The administration of former President Donald Trump halted funding to the UNRWA, calling the agency corrupt. The United States last gave money to the agency in 2017, when it transferred $365 million. Blinken suggested on Wednesday that the US would call for reforms in the agency, Reuters reported.

The Biden administration earlier this month announced that it would provide $15 million in COVID-19 assistance to the Palestinians.
