Now, the Armenian Educational Foundation (AEF) has set up an emergency fund for students from Lebanon studying in Armenia’s universities and who have been impacted by the economic crisis, hence in financial need.
The AEF announced that it has awarded 34 scholarships so far, amounting to a total of $47,400.-
“These scholarships not only give an educational lifeline to Lebanese Armenian students, many of whom come from families that have been devastated by the blast in Lebanon, but it also gives them a reason to stay and settle in Armenia,” said the AEF President, Al Cabraloff.
As of yet, over eight months later, there is no official memorial by the state for the 200+ victims.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
