The Scholarship Fund was established in 1985 and since then has helped many young Lebanese to pursue post graduate studies and training in the UK giving them an opportunity to acquire skills and experiences not available in Lebanon.Scholarships are currently offered in partnership with the Said Foundation. At present, the BLA Fund provides two or three full or partial scholarships a year to eligible graduates wishing to pursue a Masters degree in the UK. The scholarships are intended for those normally unable to afford a full time Masters course in the UK and scholars with the declared intention of returning to the Lebanon to use their additional qualification to the country’s benefit will be given priority.The British Lebanese Association Scholarship Fund is pleased to welcome it's two new scholars for 2014/2015, Zeina Hasna and Nazha Harb.
