On September 23, the Faculty of Information and Communication received Mrs. Nadine Zaccour, Member of the Michel Zaccour Foundation. The gathering took place after the signing of a MOU between the Antonine University and the Foundation for two scholarships of 5000 $ each bestowed to students doing their MA in Communication, Nathalie Issa and Ahmed Abdallah who will write research papers about Michel Zaccour’s thoughts and journey as a figure of the Lebanese independence.
It is well known that the belated Michel Zaccour was a journalist, a deputy and a minister whose ideas were of great importance for the founding of the Grand Lebanon, back in the 1920s… 100 years ago!
Father Rector Michel Jalakh, VR for Administration, Fr. Ziad Maatouk, VR for Academics and Research, Dr. Nidaa Abou Mrad, as well as the Dean of the Faculty, Dr. Dalal Moukarzel and Head of the Departments gathered around the two students to listen to their first approach to writing their articles under the supervision of Dr. Jenny Mouchantaff.
Mrs Zaccour congratulated the MA students for their ideas, and expressed the willingness to offer more scholarships to other students. Further discussion took place between the two parties to go further in the collaboration between the UA and Michel Zaccour Foundation, opening doors for more projects with students and the Faculty in the near future.
