Scholarships Fund.

April 18, 2009 - Canadian journalism and communications students will continue to have access to the National Press Club of Canada Foundation scholarships for years to come thanks to the generous donation of $30,000 by the Makhzoumi Foundation of Lebanon. The signing of the contribution agreement took place on April 16, in front of more than 180 guests at the Sheraton Hotel in Ottawa, gathered to hear Mr. Fouad Makhzoumi, Founder of the Makhzoumi Foundation, speak about Lebanon in the 21st Century.

Mr. Makhzoumi, a successful Lebanese-born Canadian business man and philanthropist, spoke about the importance of free journalism in modern societies, particularly in the context of politics and democratic elections. “Today, as you know, there are six TV stations in Lebanon: three in one political camp, the other three in the other political camp. So it depends which TV station you turn on, and you will create your own image about the country,” said Mr. Makhzoumi. “This is why we are working with the Press Club today, to say it is time to work towards allowing fair and accurate information to be portrayed about the media in general and Lebanon in particular.”

Dr. Guy Felio, President of the National Press Club, presented Mr. Makhzoumi and Mrs Makhzoumi, President of the Makhzoumi Foundation, lifetime memberships to the Press Club in recognition of their contributions to the scholarship fund and of their efforts to promote freedom of press. “As Canadians, we are sometimes shielded from these realities in other countries, and thus the importance of efforts to bring to light issues that constrict freedom of press.” said Dr. Felio.

The NPCCF Scholarships program was designed to support Canadian students in their education and will be awarding its first scholarships at the Club’s Spirit of Canada Gala, on May 12, 2009. Three bright and dedicated journalism students will be given a total of $6,000 a year for the next three years.
