“Studying architecture at AUS has proven to be the most challenging years of my life. However, passion, persistence and a scholarship were my turning point at AUS, and remembering how much of a blessing it was to get educated has been so important. The gift of scholarships encouraged me to work hard and to never settle for mediocrity.” 


Mirza Mohammad Farooq

Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering | College of Engineering

"I am delighted to have received an endowed scholarship towards my tuition for my sophomore year at AUS. I aim to study/research/work in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the future. With this in mind, I am putting my best efforts in learning and assimilating all that is taught. As for my parents, they have limited financial resources and could not have possibly afforded to sponsor the entire tuition fee. I genuinely needed this additional sponsorship. I am grateful for being the recipient of it. Thank you."
