Du, AUD to offer scholarships to Emiratis

With education being the cornerstone of a successful career and a more empowered Emirati society, du, in partnership with the American University in Dubai (AUD), is opening its doors to eligible Emiratis to apply for Bachelor’s and Master’s degree scholarships for the 2014 Spring semester. UAE nationals with special needs, who lack sufficient financial support to continue their studies, or who are children of single parents, are invited to apply.

The announcement follows the successful enrolment of 20 students to the degree course of their choice after being awarded a du and AUD scholarship for the first semester.

Every scholarship offered by du and AUD is renewable annually, depending on the student’s academic progress.

Ibrahim Nassir, Executive Vice-President, Human Resources and Organisation Development, du, said: “By providing Emiratis with scholarships, we are helping them fulfil dreams of further education that may have otherwise be out of reach. So far, in partnership with the AUD, we have provided 44 scholarships to build talent locally. There are currently 20 sponsored students benefiting from this exciting opportunity. We look forward to seeing more enrolled in the coming months.”

New students interested in applying should visit du’s head office in Dubai Internet City to check their eligibility, and then visit the AUD Admissions Office. Eligible students are required to have a minimum of 90 per cent in their high school studies, or 3.0 GPA in their undergraduate studies, and pass the admission criteria. Full details of the scholarship, including the application process, can be found at www.du.ae/scholarships and www.aud.edu. The application deadline for 2014 Spring semester is December 21.
