Participating in both local and international tournaments has helped me build character, teamwork skills, and a strong connection with my teammates and coach, who I now consider family. This scholarship is a cherished acknowledgment of our hard work and commitment," said the AUS Athletic Scholarship recipient and marketing student Karen El Khoury.
Commenting on this occasion, Shaima Bin Taliah, Executive Director of Student Experience at AUS, said: "These scholarships reflect the extraordinary breadth and depth of talent among our students.
