Lebanese Community Supports Law Students

The Lebanese Community has for the third consecutive time provided scholarship to 16 students of the Law Faculty of the University of Ghana, Legon.

The award scheme, an initiative of the Lebanese Embassy and Lebanese Community in the country, is to support students who distinguished themselves in academics during the 2014/2015 academic year.

It would cover 100 percent of the beneficiaries’ tuition fees while part of their accommodation charges will be taken care of.

In his address, Ali Halabi, the Lebanese Ambassador to Ghana said, ‘The final selection of students was done after a rigorous interview session and at this juncture, I would like to congratulate our bright students.

‘The law profession permeates all aspects of society and forms the foundation on which any society is grounded. It is for this reason that the Lebanese community decided to award scholarship to our future jurists, and we promise to continue with the assistance.

‘It is interesting to note that the renowned investigative journalists cum lawyer Anas Aremeyaw Anas is an alumnus of both UG and GIJ- the two institutions whose students are currently benefiting from this scholarship scheme.’

In its quest to contribute to the education of Ghanaian children, the Lebanese Community has extended the gesture to 100 tertiary students offering different programmes, as well as enrolled some of the beneficiaries at Alliance Francaise.

A beneficiary of the scheme indicated that ‘this support given to us by the Lebanese Community in Ghana clearly is to encourage scholarship in our academic work as future lawyers.’

The Vice-Chancellor of UG, Professor Ernest Aryetey thanked the Lebanese community for the gesture.
