Two AUK Engineering Students Receive Xerox Academic Scholarship

Xerox awarded two students from the American University of Kuwait (AUK) with the Xerox Scholarship Award, a new initiative launched by the company this year as part of Xerox's corporate social activities program. Darin Kablaoui and Omar Raad, Computer Engineering students at AUK, were selected from a pool of students who fulfilled the criteria required to be eligible for the scholarships and received the scholarships based on their excellent academic performance.

AUK President, Professor Nizar Hamzeh, was joined by AUK's Chief Information Officer, Rusty Bruns, and Xerox General Manager, Ayman Mattar, as well as other representatives from Xerox, at a ceremony held in AUK to officially present the scholarships to the recipients. "As the private sector is an essential partner of student education, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Xerox Kuwait for contributing to our Scholarship and Financial Aid Program. Darin and Omar are distinguished by their excellent scholastic records and hard work and worthy of wining the Xerox Academic Scholarship," expressed Professor Hamzeh.

While presenting the students with the scholarships, Mattar explained why Xerox Scholarship Award program is an important initiative. "Education is an investment that never fails. Xerox is proud to be part of a program that helps the students of today become the leaders of tomorrow," he said.

The Xerox Scholarship Award is awarded to students who have completed a minimum of 30 credit hours in any of the Engineering, Computer Science, or Information System majors at AUK while maintaining a minimum of a 3.0 GPA. AUK evaluates and selects the scholarship recipients.
