Boustany Foundation

Boustany Foundation was founded in 2006 by father and son, Nabil and Fadi Boustany respectively. Although initially, the foundation was being operated in two different phases—one by the father and the other, son—and each phase has its own Board of Directors that include various people from different countries and backgrounds. Even before the foundation was established, Nabil Boustany has awarded the first Boustany Scholarship to an MBA student at the University of Cambridge in 1997. Since that time, the scholarship has been awarded to many students in various fields with the aim of creating more opportunities for students who are quite exceptional. Nabil Boustany once stated that “I hope the Boustany Foundation Scholarships will be a catalyst for outstandingly talented individuals to be an influence in creating a better world for us all.”

Regarded as one of the most prestigious business programs in the world, the University of Cambridge MBA has become a training ground for many exceptional and talented students who are aspiring to rule the business world.

The scholarship is awarded once every two years for a one-year MBA course at Judge Business School, University of Cambridge.
