AUK Offers a Study Abroad Summer Scholarship at GW University

In an effort to further enrich the undergraduate experience for its students, the American University of Kuwait (AUK) has introduced a summer scholarship program at The George Washington University (GW) in Washington, DC, USA. This comes as part of the AUK Study Abroad Summer Programs Scholarship initiative, which enables students who are eligible to earn up to six credits from GW towards their academic requirements. AUK students will also experience campus life at GW and engage with the community, academically and socially, over the course of the summer.

This scholarship program will cover airfare, accommodation, and health insurance for the selected students, as well as the tuition and fees for up to six credits. To enroll in the program, the applicants must meet AUK eligibility requirements for Study Abroad, and the GW admissions criteria, including a valid TOEFL or IELTS score.

"Study Abroad experiences are a unique way to enhance a student's undergraduate education and professional career preparation. The cultural understanding, characteristics, and skill sets of students who have spent a significant period abroad help them stand out in today's marketplace. The AUK Study Abroad Summer Programs Scholarship for student going to GW is a fantastic opportunity for our students to continue their education at a distinguished institution, while exploring the heritage and culture of the US capital," said Mr. Tadd Kruse, the Coordinator of Study Abroad & Student Exchange.

AUK and GW signed an agreement in Fall 2015 to establish a program for undergraduate student exchange and collaboration. Participation in the International Summer Program at GW, and the AUK Study Abroad Summer Programs Scholarship initiative, are further illustrations of AUK's commitment to provide international experiences for students.

Other AUK student exchange programs include the Dartmouth-AUK Internship Program, which was developed as part of the Dartmouth-AUK Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), signed in September 2003.

The Undergraduate Student Exchange Programs at AUK are administered through the Coordinator of Study Abroad & Student Exchange in the Office of the President.
