The protocol for the Maroun N. Chammas Scholarship Fund was signed with USJ Foundation on Friday, December 20, 2019 at Saint Joseph University of Beirut (USJ) in the presence of family and friends.
The Scholarship Fund is intended for students of the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Management and Business, the Faculty of Pharmacy, the Faculty of Engineering and Lebanese School of Social Training.
The Fund allows the University to grant scholarships of $5,000/year to students with an entrepreneurial project that addresses a societal problem. The selection of candidates is based on a double academic and social criterion. The funds for the scholarship originate from the $100,000 per year he has committed over 10 yers part of the Maroun N. Chammas Recognition Award. As this year the circumstances in Lebanon are not favorable for organizing the awards, Chammas decided to divert his yearly financial commitment to funding the scholarships.
Through his Recognition Award program – managed by Berytech, and now with these scholarship funds, Chammas is hoping to share his entrepreneurship drive and passion with the greatest number of young people.
