About Us
For more than six years, the LEORON Foundation has actively supported vulnerable students' academic journeys in North Macedonia's universities.
We firmly believe in everyone's potential to achieve their dreams and we support this through two specialized scholarships: "Khalid Al Tawil" and "Kujtim Jusufi."
Our scholarships assist those excelling academically, as well as students from disadvantaged family environments with a focus on single-parent households, unemployed parents, orphaned students and students with special needs.
At the heart of our mission lies the unwavering belief that every Child possesses the potential to achieve greatness, irrespective of their circumstances."
