Since the onset of the socio-economic crisis in Lebanon, hundreds of students found themselves living in uncertainty about their future.
Many of them stopped having the necessary funds to continue their education in private universities that amount to most universities in Lebanon.
Even those who enrolled in the state-run (public) Lebanese University (LU) are enduring instability as the professors are constantly organizing strikes for decent wages.
The problems have further evolved with the Russo-Ukrainian conflict. Lebanese students who fled Ukraine for their safety have only come back to find no plan from their government regarding their education.
According to the King Baudouin Foundation (KBF) Canada, the education sector in Lebanon “is suffering enormously: some 80% of students are now unable to pay their tuition fees.”
Several Canadian institutions are now offering more than 232 Scholarships, fellowships, and grants for Lebanese students to study in Canada.
