2016-2017 NDU-NAM's Scholarship Program is an investment in the future of the Maronite Church. Because we recognize the importance of our youth - our future, we strive to offer them financial assistance as they embark on their college education.
Notre Dame University-Louaizé and the National Apostolate of Maronites joint scholarship offers college students who are active members of NAM the opportunity to spend a semester abroad studying in Lebanon. The Scholarship covers the cost of tuition and on-campus accommodations provided by NDU. In addition, upon receipt of a verification of enrollment from NDU, the National Apostolate of Maronites will issue an award of $500 to cover partial cost of travel to Lebanon. The current cycle will award scholarships to ten students for Spring or Fall Semester 2017.
The NDU-NAM scholarship is awarded one time only, and only to those students who have not received a NAM scholarship previously. Once winners are announced, Notre Dame University-Louaize, in conjunction with NAM, will make arrangements to tailor a successful program of study for the scholarship winners.
All scholarships are in the form of a Certificate of Award issued by National Apostolate of Maronites, conditioned upon students’ ongoing enrollment in an undergraduate, four-year degree program in an accredited college or university in the United States.
