In addition, advanced coaching by professional trainers will be provided to these athletes to enhance and further hone their skills and talent.
"AUS has always encouraged and assisted sportsmen and sportswomen in the pursuit of their careers and offered partial athletic scholarships (50 per cent tuition remission) to deserving athletes," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. "Now with the induction of athletes under the Full Athletic Scholarship scheme, the sports teams will be vitalized and other athletes will be motivated to perform better," she added.
The winners of this scholarship were announced recently. They are: Peter Mayuen, Mahmoud Trab, Petar Milutin, and Arol Pan Mading.
The aim of this scholarship program is to give talented young students the opportunity to develop their sports career by providing them with the highest standard in coaching, training, nutrition, and strength advice while they complete their chosen course of study. These scholarships are intended for persons of outstanding athletic ability geared towards the pursuit of excellence which is part of the mission of American University of Sharjah.
