The Jusoor-Modern University for Business and Science Scholarship (Jusoor-MUBS) provides full-cost scholarships to Syrian or Palestinian-Syrian students who reside in Lebanon and have been admitted to an eligible bachelor’s degree programme at the Modern University for Business and Science, beginning in the 2024–2025 academic year.
Jusoor-MUBS candidates may study any of the following fields: accounting; banking and finance; business information systems; computer science; graphic design; optometry and vision science; public health; nursing; and nutrition and dietetics. The scholarship will cover tuition fees, a laptop computer, and a modest stipend to offset other costs, such as transportation.
The programme looks for people with academic achievement, personal achievement, and leadership potential who have financial need and are committed towards rebuilding Syria. Scholarship candidates must show evidence of academic excellence through their transcripts, references, experience, and the potential to succeed on their chosen course.
