Some of the nation’s top universities have received about $10 million from the “State of Palestine” over the course of six years, according to a new report.

OpenTheBooks’s report has revealed that some of these prestigious universities from 2017-2023 received approximately $10 million from the State of Palestine, which is not recognized as a nation by the State Department or the United Nations.

In February 2020 alone, Brown University received a $643,000 gift from a foundation in the State of Palestine to create a professorship in Palestinian Studies within the school’s Center for Middle East Studies, per the report. Beshara Doumani, who founded the center, was appointed as the first Mahmoud Darwish professor of Palestinian studies.

OpenTheBooks classifies itself as an American nonprofit organization working to make government spending transparent “at every level.”
