Scholarship Overview

In late 2019, the value of the Lebanese Pound plunged, and hyper-inflation drove up the price of staple goods like beans and sugar. As part of the effort to stem the crisis, banks imposed withdrawal limits. At first, only foreign currency withdrawals were impacted, but local currency withdrawals were limited once the pandemic set in.
