The William Jefferson Clinton Scholarship at the American University in Dubai seeks to further the goals of the Clinton Presidential Foundation to strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence. In partnership with the American University in Dubai, the program will provide American students based in the US the opportunity to expand their educational and cultural horizons by studying in the Arab world. President Clinton has acknowledged the leadership of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai a model for intercultural harmony and understanding. President Clinton gave public recognition to this during his keynote Address at AUD’s Fifth Commencement (June, 2002) in which he cited the multi-cultural composition of AUD’s student body consisting of over eighty nationalities, as a microcosm of Dubai’s multi-ethnicity. In this spirit, the Clinton Presidential Foundation and AUD have established this program to encourage others to witness this diversity.
The scholarship is only open to U.S. Citizen Students currently enrolled as fulltime undergraduate degree candidates at an accredited four-year college/university in the United States.
Clinton Scholars will receive:
- A full waiver of tuition for one term;
- Dormitory housing at the American University in Dubai on a shared-room basis.
Scholars must carry a full load of academic credit (12-16 credit hours) during each semester of study and 9 credit hours during the summer session. If scholars fail to remain in good academic standing as defined by AUD’s Academic Standards or fail to adhere to the AUD Code of Conduct, program participation will be terminated. Board, texts, transportation and extracurricular activities are the financial responsibility of the student.
