The AUIS Youth Engagement Scholarship is open for applications until February 1, 2023.
The Scholarship recognizes extracurricular achievement in leadership and good citizenship, and funds 75 percent of two AUIS Youth Engagement Scholars' tuition during their study at the University. Assuming the Scholar remains in good academic standing, the scholarship will continue for the full duration of their APP and undergraduate studies. This scholarship helps ensure that engaged and active young members of society have access to a high quality education, regardless of their financial situation or baccalaureate scores.
- All applicants newly entering AUIS during the current academic year with applications submitted prior to the scholarship deadline, and who otherwise meet all AUIS enrollment requirements, are eligible to apply for the Scholarship.
Applicants may demonstrate engagement in any area of citizenship and leadership. Examples include, but are not limited to, volunteer work (e.g. working with hospitals, charity organizations, refugee camps, animal shelters, people with disabilities, environmental groups, etc.); managing or being an active member of a team, club or civic organization; starting a new business; public performances in sports, music, or the arts; and other activities in which the student has demonstrated individual excellence and the ability to work effectively with people outside of the classroom.
Students may apply for the scholarship once they have already submitted their application to study at AUIS.
Requirements include filling out an online scholarship form, along with:
- A brief statement (350 words maximum) OR a video (1-minute maximum) explaining why they deserve the scholarship;
- At least one letter of reference, from a teacher, community leader, professional or other adult with whom they have worked;
