Abstract
The study aimed at finding out the extent to which we provide the elements of crowdfunding for Palestinian university students through a study of students from different disciplines at the Al-Azhar University and Al-Quds Open University in Palestine. The sample size was 120 students and the crowdfunding scale which consists of (14) paragraphs, (87.50%) were recovered. The study found that there is a high awareness of crowdfunding among university students (70%). The study also found no significant differences due to the university variable in the field of crowdfunding elements. The results of the study also showed no statistically significant differences due to the gender variable between males and females. The study recommended the importance of holding training workshops to increase students' awareness of the concept of crowdfunding. The need to establish business incubators in universities is a platform for financing pilot projects among university students. The study also recommended that universities provide part of the funding needed to launch pilot projects through crowdfunding platforms and that the university provide consultants and experts in the field of crowdfunding to help students transform their project ideas into reality through crowdfunding platforms.
