Lebanese people, believe that education is fundamental to any successful life.
“This is why we have expanded our scholarship programme to
include students in the School of Languages and the School of Performing Arts

the Lebanese Community for the gesture on behalf of the students saying, “We
are most grateful for this gesture, it will go a long way in supporting them
