In the conviction that nothing can match firsthand experience, in 2012 NJP instituted the Ruth Hansen Palestine Travel Scholarship to send qualified applicants to Palestine/Israel to see for themselves. The scholarship is named for Ruth Hansen, the senior founding member of NJP, one who has visited Palestine many times, often as the leader of tour groups, and one who has spent much of her life tirelessly advocating on behalf of the Palestinians. The scholarship pays for recipients to enroll in a structured and focused program in the Holy Land and to gain thereby informed knowledge of the situation on the ground.
In 2013 NJP sent two recipients Palestine/Israel, in 2015 three.
