About the jury

KANIYA COLLECTIVE is not a traditional academic scholarship. For our jury, the decisive criteria are outstanding personalities with ambition that are socially engaged and care about the future of Lebanon, rather than excellent grades.

The selection process of scholars is driven exclusively by our jury, with minimal involvement of the KANIYA board. This is how we ensure KANIYA remains a grassroots organisation for the Lebanese people.

We want to support the generation affected by the economic crisis. The Jury reflects our holistic approach, being experts from different professional backgrounds that are united in their motivation to offer students a possibility in the midst of these challenging times.
