American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS) announced reduced merit-based tuition rates for recent grade 12 graduates from across the country who scored 90 percent and above on the national baccalaureate examination.
The new rates are supported in part by a United States government grant to encourage higher university enrollment in Iraq, particularly of women and minority students.
Entering students with baccalaureate scores of 95 and above will receive free tuition for the duration of their study at AUIS, while students who earned a score of 90-94 will receive a 75-percent merit scholarship to cover tuition fees during their time at AUIS.
“The coronavirus pandemic has posed an enormous learning challenge and great financial hardship to all our students,” said AUIS’s President Bruce Walker Ferguson. “Students who are just starting their university studies are among those who face the largest financial hurdles to completing their education. We thank the U.S. Government for its support of university education in the country, and are proud to be able to provide additional support to outstanding students who would like to make use of the excellent academic opportunities available at AUIS.”
