<a href="https:\/\/see.news\/auc-hosts-imfs-presentation-on-world-economic-outlook\/">American University in Cairo<\/a> ( AUC ) offered new and varied scholarships to many Egyptian and international students this semester. About 64 new students joined the university through scholarships.\r\nMore than 500 students are already studying at the university through scholarships.\r\n\r\nA wide range of students benefit from these new AUC <a href="https:\/\/www.cambridgetrust.org\/scholarships\/">scholarships<\/a>, especially those with special needs as well as international and governmental school students who are seeking to study abroad.\r\n\r\nSama Abd El Hamid, a 1st-year student in the political science department, said that her life changed because she received Dr. Hamza El-Kholy's scholarship for governmental schools. Her dream is to provide education that is more accessible for people with special needs in Egypt.\r\n\r\nTwo visually impaired students were supported in this semester through the Qaderoon Scholarship, which is provided by Misr El-Kheir Foundation in partnership with Sawiris Foundation for Social Development; the foundation provides full financial support to students with motor-auditory and visual impairments.\r\n\r\nThe aim of the scholarship is to integrate students into university life and provide them with special educational opportunities that enable them to obtain quality education and better employment opportunities.\r\n\r\n\u201cThe best thing you can do with your money is to invest it in education because education is boundless,\u201d said Manar Khair, a 1st-year journalist studying under the Qaderoon Scholarship.\r\n\r\n\u201cI am very excited to eventually work on AUC TV, and I want to use my voice as a tool for change in the community,\u201d Khair said.\r\n\r\nIn addition, AUC 's Centennial Scholarships Fund provides full or partial support to Egyptian and international students with outstanding academic qualifications and those in need of financial support.\r\n\r\nFarah Awad, a first-year student at the university said, \u201cThe Centennial AUCScholarship Fund helps me realize my academic dreams and encourages me to study more and continue to earn the highest grades to retain the scholarship over the next few years.\u201d\r\n\r\nIn order to promote and encourage liberal education and to benefit from the university's efforts to attract international students, the Liberal Arts Studies Scholarship was launched; the university provides partial and full support to students from Egypt, the region and the United States studying humanities or social sciences. In addition, some scholarships have been offered to support specific studies in particular colleges.\r\n\r\nOther grants offered to Egyptian students include the Egyptian Refining Company's Public Schools Scholarship, which is awarded to students from public schools in El-Matareya, El-Khosous or East Shubra El-Kheima (Mostorod).\r\n\r\nIt supports students to pursue their studies in any of the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics offered by the university. The 4th group of students joined these two scholarships this fall.\r\n\r\nThe Hadhramout Foundation Scholarship provides Yemeni students with undergraduate and postgraduate studies in support of academically outstanding Yemeni students wishing to obtain a bachelor's or postgraduate degree at the university.\r\n\r\nFor American students, the David Bondermann Travel and Learning Fund is responsible for the costs of undergraduate, graduate, or study abroad at the university.\r\n\r\nNoteworthy, Pondermann is a graduate of the Center for Arab Studies Abroad in 1969.\r\n\r\nThese new scholarships not only encourage international students to study here at the university, but also aim to support university students to study outside Egypt, such as the Nancy and Jonathan Wolf Scholarship Study abroad for students wishing to study at the University of Central Florida, USA.\r\n\r\nInternational graduate students studying Egyptology can apply for the Bernard and Lisa Siles Fellowship in Egyptology; it is also available to Egyptian students.
