Ten Merit Scholarships for 2001-2002 were announced by President John
Waterbury at the annual reception held for some 1,300 new students in
the garden at Marquand House on October 12.
The Merit Scholarship Program originated in the spring of 1999, when,
on a re-commendation from President Waterbury, the Board of Trustees started
exempting ten outstanding students from tuition fees. The exemption, based
on merit alone, is applicable every year until graduation, provided the
student maintains academic excellence. This year's winners are freshmen
Samar Fatayri, Robin Lahoud, Ramzi Madi, and Sasha Wehbeh, and sophomores
Rola Alam, Mira Al-Arab, Antoine Daher, Joanna Fayyad, Bernard Ghanem,
and Samah Halawi.
The Merit Scholarship Program has been running for three years now. Winners
for 1999-2000 were freshmen Maamoun Al-Shaka, Layla Ammar, Manar El-Chammas,
and Dana Jaber and sophomores Shirine Khoury, Samar Malaeb, Nadine Mouawad,
Maha Nizam, Rayan Saab, and Antoine Skaf. For the year 2000-2001 the winners
were freshmen Bechara Abi Assi, Walid Baroudy, Leila El-Awar, and Nabeel
Sleiman, and sophomores Ibrahim El-Khalil, Ayman Hallab, Mohammad Karaki,
Zeina Maalouf, Ghina Mikati, and Hassan Mohanna.
