Amsterdam University College has awarded 75 students with AUC Scholarship for the 2011-2012 academic year. The total amount of scholarships given has reached € 485,000, which is twice as much as the amount of the previous year.

Students who receive an AUC Scholarship will be evaluated after one year of study and will be awarded for another year if:

- they have successfully passed the first year (a GPA of at least 3.0 and preferably to be on the excellence list with a GPA≥3.5)
- they receive positive recommendation at the end of the academic year from their tutors and the Board of examiners
- they can prove that their financial need base has not changed.

### AUC Scholarship awardees share their experience

“In order to be able to handle a demanding and challenging programme such as AUC, high motivation is not enough. Financial support is definitely needed to be able to function as a full-time student. Without this scholarship I would have not been able to get to the place where I am at this moment, and to continue from here in achieving my future goals.” Alon Gilboa, Israel.

“The AUC scholarship gives students like me the possibility to focus our attention on studying and therefore achieve excellent results regardless of our financial background”. Matthias Harter, Germany

"I greatly appreciate that I was granted a full scholarship for studying at AUC. Indeed, the scholarship inspires me to work hard all the time." Jia Xu. China
