I got this email from the president of LAU
, Joseph G. Jabbra Ph.D., calling upon all LAU alumni requesting donations for LAU students applying for financial aid. Read it, and if you are interested, you may know more through the links below.
"LAU has launched an Alumni Emergency Fund for Financial Aid as a supplemental relief fund to cater for hardship cases of needy students. As you know, LAU students come from all over Lebanon, including areas that witnessed fierce battles. Those students have been affected morally, physically and financially. Some students and their families have been directly affected through the loss of homes, businesses, jobs and loved ones. Many are in dire need of financial support to be able to complete their education. As such, we expect an increase in demand for financial aid from all students: those already benefiting from the financial aid system and others who are now unable to settle their tuition fees due to direct losses their families incurred. Future students and new applicants are also expected to ask for help in large numbers. In light of these pressing needs for support, I kindly ask you to consider contributing to your alma mater by donating either towards its financial aid program or to its unrestricted fund. This will help LAU continue providing academic excellence and quality service to more than 6,000 students, who together with faculty and staff will play a leading role in Lebanon’s recovery. You have been active players in supporting your country by all means. LAU acknowledges your endless efforts and urges you to help fellow students complete their education. This will give them the chance to work for their country’s recovery and make a difference in their turn."
