UCLA’s Scholarship Program: Giving Voice to Arab Women

To further the school’s commitment towards outreach and student opportunities, a webinar dedicated to UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television’s (UCLA TFT) new directing scholarships was given at LAU on October 29. Both Beirut and Byblos students were able to tune in and learn about these international opportunities. 




The new Directing scholarships for the M.F.A. degree program in Directing/ Production are designed to give voice to the unique perspective of Arab women. The program is focused on the power of the story to not only delight and entertain, but to make a difference in the world.

Three four-year scholarships are available and include full tuition, registration fees, housing, meals and books. The purpose of the scholarships is to study the art and craft of directing at the prestigious UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television in Los Angeles, California U.S.A. 

Students who participated in the event expressed their enthusiasm as this possible venture. Many are now considering both applying to the scholarship program or the university in general to complete their postgraduate education.
