Dear Graduate Students,
  Applications for the Graduate Student Support Grants (Conference, Research and Study Abroad)  will now be carried out online. 
  For those applying for a graduate support grant in the April 2015 cycle, 
please use the link below
and log on using your AUC email credentials. Fill out the needed information, and apply to the relevant grant by filling the online forms.  The system allows you to save a draft and edit it later before submission. However, once you submit the application, you will not be able to change anything in it. Therefore be sure the version you submit is your final version.
  The deadline for submission is April 19, 2015   Submissions not carried out through the online system will not be considered. Considering this is the first cycle with the online system, we strongly recommend that you finalize your application and submit it before the deadline, in case you face technical issues.
  The online system is straightforward, and easy to use. However, if you encounter issues you need to ask about, please contact Ms. Samah Abdel Geleel, Assistant to the Dean of Graduate Studies at
  Best of luck,   --- Adham Ramadan, PhD (cantab), MRSC, CChem, CSci Professor of Chemistry Dean of Graduate Studies P029 Campus Center The American University in Cairo
