The awards were presented by AUS Acting Chancellor, Dr. Thomas Hochstettler. Also in attendance were Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, and other senior officials.
"We at AUS value the importance of extra- and co-curricular activities because they add so much to the student experience. As a residential university and as a university that values all aspects of human development, and seeks to promote human development in all aspects, we are pleased and proud to be able to offer such excellent programs in the area of student activities," said Dr. Hochstettler. "And we are pleased to be expanding those programs in ways that will continue over the course of time to serve students ever better and to make them ever better citizens of the world," he added.
Dr. Al Shehhi congratulated the awards winners and said, "This semester we have received many applications for the scholarship. Competition has been stringent as many applicants are well-qualified for the scholarship," she said.
