One of the University’s major priorities is providing scholarships and financial aid support to its students, in order to further American University in Cairo’s (AUC) mission of building a culture of leadership, lifelong learning, and dedication to making significant contributions to Egypt and the international community in diverse fields. Through scholarship awards, AUC attracts gifted young men and women, regardless of their financial circumstances, to the University and provides them with an education that empowers them to create positive change in Egypt and the world. AUC offers scholarships based on merit and need. Students with special qualifications, such as academic, athletic or artistic talent and who demonstrate high financial need compete for these scholarships.
AUC also offers scholarships for undergraduate and graduate study abroad students.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, AUC offers more than 90 named scholarships supported by individuals and corporations. These funds from prestigious donors have allowed AUC to recruit and educate outstanding and eligible students coming from different cities, countries and educational backgrounds.
