Help Students to shape their lives

Firstly, we would like to extend our thanks to the donors who made it possible for students to attend AQU, whom would have never been able to pay for tuition fees without your appreciated support.

A large number of our donors who help to finance tuition fees regularly, chose to either sponsor a student/s or donate a specific amount per semester, that could help cover up to 50% of the tuition fees for more than one student.

Both the Sponsorship, and the Contribution to Students' Fund Programs at AQU are targeted at the significant financial need of undergraduate students, who belong to families with low incomes or families who can’t afford to pay tuition fees for more than one child to attend university. All the students are also assessed on their academic merit.

Both programs have been designed to allow donors to get to know the student who is receiving help, and track their academic achievements, as well as meet them at the annual gathering of AQU donors, scheduled to take place every April.

Our respected donors can help our students by:

Becoming a Donor that is committed and wishes to sponsor students or by contributing to the student fund each semester or upon your interest. Your commitment or only partially to keep helping our students at your convenience, through either being a commited sponsor or a Donor who wishes to make contributions, may be shaped into a Fund that you can design, based on your interest and expectations.

Name Your Fund and Set Your criteria

You may chose to name your Fund after you, a beloved member of the family, your corporation name or something that represents a value. Then you can then set the criterion for students who have access to this fund.

For example:

  • Academic merit
  • Financial status of the student
  • Gender
  • Specific Faculties and/or Majors (ex. some MD. Doctors sponsor students at the Medical School)
  • Donors sometimes sponsor students prioritising those coming from the donor's place of birth (city or village, etc)
  • Donors may also design their Fund to include a track that would allow students other opportunities than just covering tuiotion fees, "The Riyad Al- Ghussein Fund” is a good example.
