An award selection committee that is distinct of the LCN executive board will solely handle applications. The committee, consisting of three members, will evaluate the applicants on an anonymous basis and rank applicants individually. The committee will then convene to discuss applications and select the winner. Committee members are chosen after applications are in to avoid any conflict of interest due to pre-existing relations between the committee members and the applicants.

The foremost purpose of LCN is to foster, connect and develop Lebanese collegiate clubs, students and alumni within the United States. For more information, please visit the LCN website at
