U.S. Scholarship Support of $85,155 Benefits 71 Haigazian University Students
On March 4, 2011, Chargé D’Affaires a.i. of the US Embassy in Lebanon, Mr. Thomas F. Daughton, and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)/ Lebanon’s Mission Director Dr. Jim Barnhart presented a check for $85,155 to Haigazian University as part of its $600,000 contribution to Haigazian’s scholarship fund for academic year 2009 - 2010. Seventy one students benefited from this amount, bringing the total number of students to date with USAID scholarships at Haigazian University to 356.
The above was made possible with the support of the American people.
During their visit to Haigazian University, Mr. Daughton and Dr. Barnhart met with University President, Rev. Dr. Paul Haidostian, a number of staff and students.
Through their short tour in campus, they had the chance to see Haigazian’s new Heritage Building on May Ziadeh street, and its recently completed beautiful garden.
