The AREC '82 class of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences came together in support of FAFS and AUB and created a new endowment fund to provide scholarships to deserving undergraduates majoring in food, agriculture, or the environment. Students must demonstrate financial need and elect careers that will positively impact the country by improving the lives of people.
The partial scholarships will help to fund the AREC dorm fees for third-year agriculture students and support research. The first donors of the AREC '82 Endowment Fund are five AREC '82 classmates, who have donated $120,000 to the fund. The goal is to increase the endowment capital and raise $250,000 from outside Lebanon.
