The American University of Bahrain (AUBH) has granted scholarships to six Bahraini students who were selected from a pool of over 80 applicants.
The American University of Bahrain (AUBH) is the first comprehensive, purpose-built, American-model co-educational University in the Kingdom of Bahrain and is supported by the Elm fund. The University offers a holistic journey for students and unique approach to education that fosters interaction and collaboration between students, faculty, and the professional community.
AUBH grants scholarships to students who demonstrate the ability to thrive in a diverse and multicultural environment. Applicants are assessed holistically beyond their academic performance such as GPA, English proficiency, and problem-solving abilities to include personal qualities and achievements outlined in their portfolios, personal statements, and interviews. All candidates completed a rigorous evaluation process and were selected based on their exemplary academic performance, achievements, and motivation to succeed in an American-style environment.
Recently, AUBH has granted scholarships to six Bahraini students for the incoming Class of 2027 in its efforts to provide an accessible American-model of education in the Kingdom. The scholarship recipients are Dana Ahmed and Fareeda AlMudaifa pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance; Mohammed AlZayani, Saud Shareeda, and Ziyad AlHajri pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science; and Jawaher Kazim pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration in Digital Marketing and Social Media. The merit-based scholarships will provide students with full tuition for their four-year undergraduate programs of choice and will guarantee internships at top firms in Bahrain.
AUBH Chief Operating Officer, William D. Hurt, commented, “At AUBH, we believe that creating opportunities for deserving students is central to our mission as a university. I am honoured to welcome such talented young adults as the recipients of our AUBH scholarships, who have already demonstrated academic excellence and are active participants in their communities. AUBH is happy to support them on their paths to success.”
Commenting on the occasion, Dean of Students, Dr. Amal Al Awadhi, stated, “As part of our mission here at AUBH, we aspire to facilitate access to education for aspiring, high-achieving students who demonstrate a passion not only for academic excellence but for gaining skills and knowledge. These students make a difference and actively contribute to the socio-economic development of the community.”
