To support students in their pursuit of a quality education, American University of Sharjah (AUS) has introduced new scholarship schemes:
- Distinguished Student Scholarship
Effective Fall 2017, the Distinguished Student Scholarship will be offered to new first-time students who have demonstrated academic excellence and achieved a high school percentage of 95 percent and above. The scholarship will cover 20 percent of the tuition and lab/technology fee.
- Academic Accomplishment Scholarship
New first-time students who have achieved a high school percentage of 90.00–94.99 percent will be eligible for this scholarship, and it will cover up to 10 percent of their tuition and lab/technology fee effective Fall 2017.
In addition to recently increasing the Merit Scholarship percentage for continuing students, AUS has also made changes to the Family Tuition Grant conditions and the eligibility requirements for financial grants for the summer term and for transfer students:
- Family Tuition Grant
This grant is offered to families with more than one child simultaneously enrolled at AUS. Effective Summer 2017, the grant will be offered in the summer term as well.
- Financial Grant for the Summer 2017 Term
Beginning in Summer 2017, new first-time and returning students are eligible to apply for financial grants for the summer term.
- Financial Grant for Transfer Students
Students who transfer to AUS are now eligible to apply for financial grants in their first semester or summer term at AUS.
The deadline to apply for a financial grant for the summer term is May 2, 2017.
