February 28, 2018

The El Khalil Foundation, a non-profit NGO established by the El-Khalil family, has gifted LAU with $100,000 toward an annual scholarship grant. The major gift, made official in the fall, aims to help financially disadvantaged yet academically deserving students from the Hasbaya District in the south of Lebanon.

Already the El Khalil Foundation Annual Scholarship Grant is making a major impact on youth from that district, with 19 LAU students benefiting from the donation so far.
