Important Notice from the LNASP
June 20th, 2014

Dear Libyan Students in Canada,

This message is a follow-up to our previous communication in an effort to provide regular updates regarding the status of the scholarship funding for the Libyan-North American Scholarship Program (LNASP), particularly as it relates to the 2013 – 2014 health insurance and 3rd Quarter MLA budgets.

CBIE continues to work closely with senior government officials as well as with the Libyan Embassies in Washington and in Ottawa with the objective that our coordinated efforts will result in expediting the transfer of budgets to our account. Over the past couple of days, there have been some unofficial positive indicators that funds are in the process of being transferred for the health insurance budget.

If the transfer of health insurance is received in CBIE’s account by Monday, June 30th, CBIE will be in a position to confirm continuation of health insurance benefits as of July 2014 for eligible scholarship students. Regarding the MLA for July 2014, CBIE will be in a position to process it immediately upon receipt of the 3rd Quarter MLA list and budget.

Recognizing the urgency of the situation and the impact on students and their families please be assured that the coordinated efforts with senior government officials will continue until funds have been transferred to our account. CBIE will communicate again with students as soon as we have additional news to share.

The Libyan-North American Scholarship Program
