What the Students Say


Scholarship Information for School Counselors 

As a Sharakah partner school, you are invited to nominate students from your school to be considered for a Sharakah scholarship offered by AUS. We are very happy to extend this opportunity to your school and hope that it will enhance your efforts in supporting your distinguished and deserving students who are interested in joining AUS. Find out more about the scholarship and grant opportunities available to your students who qualify.

Sharakah School Scholarships

Your school can nominate up to five of your AUS applicants to receive a Sharakah School Scholarship named after your school in the range of 50 to 100 percent remission on tuition and housing (sharing room for women and men; single and double for men only). This is a limited and competitive scholarship. Newly admitted applicants with limited financial resources will be given priority in consideration.

Nominees not selected for this scholarship will be automatically considered for the financial grants program, which provides remission on tuition and shared accommodation that ranges from 5 to 50 percent.

Click here to fill the Sharakah Scholarship Nomination Form.

Other Grants and Scholarships Available  

AUS offers the opportunity for a university education to those who have the necessary talent and commitment, but perhaps not the finances. Two out of three students at AUS receive grants and scholarships each year. For more information on the range of scholarships and grants available to qualifying students, please click here.

Within established guidelines, AUS will work to help financially challenged students from your school who are interested in joining the university. To help us in this regard, we would truly appreciate your support in sharing information about our scholarship and grant opportunities to interested parents and students. 

We are happy to work collaboratively with you on cases that require special consideration. We encourage you to connect directly with the Office of Financial Grants and Scholarships to discuss the cases of applicants who have special circumstances.
