The Institute of Astronomy at Cambridge University was established in 1823, and its globally acknowledged as one of the world's foremost institutes.

The priority is given to nationals of Lebanese descent. Candidates must also fulfill the admissions requirements of Cambridge University and show exceptional ability and promise. The Foundation does not fund other Ph.D. courses in Astronomy at other than Cambridge University.

Projects are varied and relate to the Foundation's activities or those of its partners. Travel and accommodation expenses related to the internship will be covered by the Foundation. The next Scholarship will be awarded for the class commencing Autumn 2019.

About Boustany foundation:

The foundation was established in 2006 by Nabil Boustany and his son Fadi, and it is now present in Switzerland and Monaco. The first Boustany Scholarship was awarded in 1997 to an MBA student at the University of Cambridge. The Foundation has since awarded many scholarships in various fields with plans to create more opportunities in the coming years for exceptional students. The Boustany Foundation is actively engaged today in promoting and managing scholarship and aid programs, as an ambitious plan for further development, global reach, and aiding outstanding and promising students who deserve to be rewarded. New scholarships for talented and promising individuals are progressively being created. Each year the foundation creates more projects that offer opportunities for disadvantaged children.
