About the Program
The private schools’ scholarship program aims to support the schools and at-risk students by providing a 50% scholarship for the students to pay their US dollars tuition fees.
The financial crisis had its toll on Lebanese students too, many students are at risk of losing their education because their families cannot afford private school tuition fees anymore especially that a part of the schools’ tuition fees are now collected in US Dollars
Given this situation, the Lebanese Association for Scientific Research launched this scholarship targeting private schools’ students and pledging to cover 50% of the tuition fees that are paid in US Dollars, while the parents of the student cover the remaining amount.
The main goal of the program is to support the educational sector by helping schools overcome the current situation and by providing better working environments for both students and teachers to prevent school dropouts. LASeR aims to be able to cover the biggest number of schools and students possible.
