AUIS is pleased to announce the continuation of the Humanities Scholarship to provide financial support to young women studying humanities at the University.
Since its inception in 2017, the Humanities Scholarship has benefitted several female AUIS undergraduate students from across the country and enabled them to follow their dreams of studying humanities. Student scholars major in programs such as English Literature, Journalism, Law, and International Studies and take courses in topics covering history, gender studies, philosophy, and more. After graduation, previous scholarship recipients have gone on to pursue various job opportunities, with several winners pursuing postgraduate degrees in the United States.
The Humanities Scholarship has been provided to the University through the generous support of a donor who wishes to remain anonymous but maintains a strong commitment to uplifting young women in the region through educational opportunities. Detailing the intention behind the grant, the donor explained, “This grant is part of a larger global effort to help women and girls, as well as men and boys, focusing specifically on conflict zones where violence disproportionately affects women.” The donor continued, “We have chosen to remain anonymous because this support should in no way focus on us, but on the women who anchor long-term peace efforts in their communities. As they rise, they will lift up everyone”.
Aims – The principal aim of this scholarship is to provide funding for one 3rd- or 4th-year female student showing exceptional promise who is studying the humanities.
Scholarship Award Amount – The annual scholarship will cover tuition and dormitory fees.
Fields of Interest – English (Literature, Journalism, Translation), International Studies, Law
Basis of Award – Scholarship will go to a female student with a declared humanities major, with a preference for 3rd or 4th year students. Applicants must demonstrate financial need, and are currently not on academic probation. Priority will be given to students who have interned at Kashkul.
