The Boustany Foundation Internship
Successful scholars are expected to complete a two-month unpaid internship with the Boustany Foundation during the course of their studies. Specific projects are developed for each scholar. These are varied and relate to the Foundation’s activities or those of its partners.
Established in 2006 by Nabil Boustany and his son Fadi, the Boustany Foundation is present in Switzerland and Monaco.
The two entities share a similar vision although each has its own Board of Directors representing a diverse range of nationalities and backgrounds.
Preceding the Foundation itself, the first Boustany Scholarship was awarded in 1997 to an MBA student at the University of Cambridge. The Foundation has since awarded many scholarships in various fields with plans to create more opportunities in the coming years for exceptional students.
Today, the Boustany Foundation is actively engaged in promoting and managing scholarship and aid programmes – all of which have ambitious plans for further development, global reach and scope. New scholarships for talented and promising individuals are progressively being created. Each year more projects that offer opportunities for disadvantaged children are proposed and brought to fruition.
Description of Ideal Candidate:
The Scholarship is offered to an outstanding and highly-meriting candidate from all nationalities who must have an excellent academic background.
Candidates must show exceptional ability and promise and may apply for the Scholarship only after receiving an offer of admission from the Cambridge University Faculty of Philosophy.
Cost/funding for participants:
The Scholarship offers the following:
Tuition fees for the three-year course
Accommodation and living expenses at Pembroke College
Travel and accommodation expenses related to the internship.
