The William Jefferson Clinton Scholarship at AUD (U.S. Students only)

The William Jefferson Clinton Scholarship at the American University in Dubai seeks to further the goals of the Clinton Foundation to strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence. In partnership with the American University in Dubai, the program will provide American students based in the US the opportunity to expand their educational and cultural horizons by studying in the Arab world. President Clinton gave public recognition to this during his keynote Address at AUD’s Fifth Commencement (June, 2002) in which he cited the multi-cultural composition of AUD’s student body consisting of over one hundred nationalities, as a microcosm of Dubai’s multi-ethnicity. In this spirit, the Clinton Presidential Foundation and AUD have established this program to encourage others to witness this diversity.

ELIGIBILITY

The scholarship is only open to U.S. Citizen students. In order to be eligible for a scholarship, a student must currently be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate degree candidate at an accredited four-year college/university in the United States. It is expected that applicants will demonstrate exemplary academic achievement. Preference will be given to students who show interest in being exposed to the Middle Eastern and Islamic cultures for the first time.
