AUS Athletic Scholarship Program

Athletic scholarships recognize athletic ability and are awarded to talented student-athletes to help them finance their studies at AUS.

The Student Athletics and Recreation Department of the Office of Student Affairs recruits and retains elite student-athletes, offers them full and partial athletic scholarships, and provides them with professional coaching so that they can represent AUS at the highest level of intercollegiate sports.

The Full Athletic Scholarship includes free tuition, medical insurance coverage and accommodation in the residential halls on campus. It is awarded on a renewable yearly basis unless a student-athlete enrolls mid-year. The Partial Athletic Scholarship includes 50 percent tuition remission (for a maximum of 16 credit hours) and is awarded on a renewable semester basis subject to terms and conditions of the AUS Athletic Scholarship Program.
