Please note that you have to be accepted by AUB and LASeR to get the scholarhsip! After successfully applying, you will be invited by our team for an interview (Online) . The results of the interview will determine whether you get the scholarship or not. Our team will call all applicants by the end of March to tell them the results. In addition, the results will be added to the account that you create on connected.laser-lb.org 

To be accepted in LASeR no, applicants don’t take any tests, they just undergo an interview and the results determine whether they get the scholarship or not. However you will have to undergo tests to be accepted in AUB. 

Adding the scholarship to other scholarships is not possible in most cases. The agreement with the university doesn’t give you this option. However, in case the university allows you to add another scholarship to our program we definitely allow it.

The repayment of the interest free loan is immediate. This means that once you get the scholarship, you will start repaying the interest-free loan the following month.

Payments are given to LASeR and not to the university. You can pay your fees in the association or at the bank.
