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.
Applications for 2018 - 2019 are now open
The BLA is pleased to announce its special relationship with Durham University and would encourage applicants seeking a particularly warm welcome at one of the highest ranking universities in the UK to apply for master’s courses here.
“The British Lebanese Association sees its Scholarship award scheme as the jewel in its crown and is pleased to have supported generations of Lebanese scholars who have gone on to do outstanding and important work. The Association operates its scholarship programme in conjunction with and particularly values the support, expertise and kindred spirit of the Said Foundation.”Sir David RichmondChairman British Lebanese Association
