The Maronite Foundation is proud to announce, for the 8th consecutive year, the Maronite Academy 2020, in honor of the late Executive Board Member Michel Abi Nader.
The Maronite Academy is an endeavor undertaken by the Maronite Foundation aimed at strengthening ties between the youths living aboard and their motherland Lebanon.
After going through a series of online courses, the applicants (between the ages of 20 and 30, of Lebanese descent, living abroad) should be fluent in English. They will undergo a written Essay, based on research and on personal/family experience, assessing the reason why they would like to visit Lebanon with the Maronite Foundation, and if they were willing to contribute helping the Foundation by motivating the largest number of Lebanese living abroad among their communities, to recover their Lebanese citizenship.
The successful candidates will partake in the Maronite Academy’s Educational trip, where they will have the chance to live an unforgettable experience; a two-week trip to Lebanon from July 19th to August 3rd.
During the two weeks, the youth will tour their homeland, Lebanon and explore its Religious and Historical landmarks. They will be hosted by USEK University, where will attend daily lectures by prominent figures.
