Masri Endowment for the UT Jackson School of Geosciences

Education Information

The Munib and Angela Masri Foundation has pledged $10.5 million to create an endowment for graduate education at The University of Texas at Austin Jackson School of Geosciences. The gift will establish prestigious Masri graduate fellowships at the Jackson School for students from Palestinian, Jordanian and Lebanese universities to support education and research in water, land use, energy, climate and environmental resilience. In honor of the gift, the Jackson School is naming its courtyard on the East Mall “The Munib and Angela Masri Family Courtyard.”

The agreement was officially signed in the Palestinian city of Nablus earlier this month in a ceremony attended by Mosher, the Masri family and the presidents of many Palestinian universities. One of the goals of the new fellowships is to continue to foster research collaborations between the Jackson School and the universities whose students are eligible for the fellowships.
