Summary

By the end of March 2020, we aim to secure funds for partial scholarships for financially disadvantaged prospective students from post-communist countries. Financial support in the amount of 20% of the cost of tuition for the first year of education will be provided to 10 scholars in August 2020, for Academic year 2020/2021. Even if we don't manage to raise the whole amount, we will proportionately distribute whatever we have collected by the deadline.

Challenge

Hundreds of students from the post-communist countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia dream to pursue a degree at AUBG. They all share a common passion - to serve the best interests of their countries, which are still affected by a complexity of socio-political issues and processes of economic restructuring. Unfortunately, the majority of their families cannot afford to pay full tuition fees at the university.

Solution

Scholarships in the amount of $2,500 each will be offered to 10 talented first-year international students from Eastern Europe and Central Asia. First year is toughest in terms of finances. After that most of our students go to Work Abroad Programs to gain experience, make and save money for their university fees. In the meanwhile AUBG will do its best to support its students with additional scholarships and financial aid based on their academic achievement and demonstration of need.

Long-Term Impact

AUBG is a symbol of democratization for the region and a modern higher educational institution. It places a special emphasis on students' dedication to supporting the democratic development and ethical governance of their countries. After graduation, the Scholars will apply the knowledge and skills acquired at the University, in their home communities. They are expected to become the agents of positive social change.
