American University of Iraq, Sulaimani President Bruce Ferguson and Director of Admissions Rebeen Azad on September 5, 2018 met with students at the Arbat Camp outside of Sulaimani city to discuss scholarship opportunities under the University’s new Brighter Future Arbat Refugee Fund. Members of the school’s staff welcomed AUIS to the facility.

The new Fund was established by Ms. Florence Robichon and her husband Mr. Rachid Benyakhlef to provide scholarships to Syrian refugees to pursue a university degree at AUIS after graduation from high school.

AUIS provides 90 percent of its students with merit-based scholarships and other financial aid to support students from across Iraq. See
