Scholarship Description: One of the University’s major priorities is providing scholarships and financial aid support to its students in order to further AUC’s mission of building a culture of leadership ready to contribute to both Egypt and the international community in diverse fields. Scholarship support enables AUC to attract gifted young men and women, regardless of their financial circumstances, to the University, and provide them with an education that empowers them to create positive change in Egypt and the world. AUC offers scholarships based on merit and need. Honor scholarships are granted to students who achieved excellent secondary academic records.
Number of award(s): A maximum of five such AUC scholarships for IGCSE students are awarded every year.
Duration of award(s): The honor scholarship is a one year award that is re-evaluated annually, after summer semester exam results are issued. Recipients of the scholarship will retain the scholarship as long as they maintain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of not less than 3.4 and full-time status (24 credit hours). Students who take remedial English courses (i.e. ELI and/or English 100) during the fall and /or spring semesters of the previous academic year will retain their honor scholarship. If a student’s cumulative GPA falls below 3.4 or does not maintain a full-time status, he or she loses the scholarship. Unlike achievement scholarships, honor scholarships cannot be regained.
