Active and athletic students awarded scholarships
Twenty seven American University of Sharjah (AUS) students were awarded the Active Student and Partial Athletic Scholarships offered by the Office of Student Affairs for Fall 2018 at a ceremony held on October 9 at the AUS Student Center.
"These scholarships are a gesture of the university’s acknowledgement of your hard work and efforts in representing AUS and uplifting its reputation locally, regionally and internationally through your accomplishments in athletics and the extracurricular field. We convey our appreciations to all awardees and to all active students and hope that you understand and value the importance of out-of-class learning that complement your academic endeavors at AUS," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students, in her address to the awardees.
The AUS Active Student Scholarship is aimed at providing scholarships to outstanding active students who demonstrate excellence in extracurricular activities and whose efforts yield exceptional results and inspire other students to become high achievers. The scholarship entitles the recipient to up to 25 percent tuition remission for one semester. Nine students were awarded the scholarship for their work in community services, AUS Leadership Program, clubs and organizations, and the AUS Student Council.
Eighteen students received the AUS Partial Athletic Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to talented student-athletes who excel in sports, exhibit good sportsmanship and dedication and establish a record of consistent participation. The scholarship aims to encourage student participation, develop sports at the university and promote the role of athletics in an American model of higher education. The scholarship entitles the recipient to an award of up to 25 percent tuition remission for one semester.
“I congratulate the awardees of the Fall 2018 Active Student and Partial Athletic Scholarships. We received many outstanding applications as these scholarships are highly competitive. It was tough for the scholarship committee to make a decision and those who are here today made it through astringent selection process," said Al Shehhi.
