Procedural document on academic scholarships at AUA

This document outlines the procedures for distributing scholarships at AUA in accordance with the university’s Financial Aid policy, http://policies.aua.am/policy/142

AUA Academic Scholarship

Students do not apply for AUA academic scholarship.  AUA academic scholarship is awarded by the corresponding programs based on the distribution plan approved by the Financial Aid Committee for each academic year. First-year graduate students are not eligible for AUA academic scholarship. Awards typically cover half the cost of annual tuition published for each eligible program.

The Financial Aid office informs programs of the availability of funds for the respective academic year. After decisions are made by the programs, recipients are notified by official award letters signed by the Provost and delivered to students by the Financial Aid Office.

AUA/MoES Scholarships

AUA/MoES scholarships for graduate students

Graduate students do not apply for AUA/MoES scholarships. These are full scholarships covered by AUA with a partial subsidy by the RA Ministry of Education and Science. Recipients also receive stipends allocated by the MoES.

AUA/MoES scholarships  are awarded to graduate students according to the distribution plan approved by the Financial Aid Committee for each academic year. The Financial Aid office informs programs of the availability of funds for the respective academic year. After decisions are made by the programs, recipients are notified by official award letters signed by the Provost and delivered to students by the Financial Aid Office.

 

Scholarships for International Students

International students must apply for an international scholarship. Application forms can be found at http://finaid.aua.am/forms/.  Once an international student is admitted to the university, the Financial Aid Office sends all international scholarship applications to the respective programs which make final decisions, subject to availability of funds.  After the decisions are made by the programs, recipients are notified by official award letters signed by the Provost and delivered by the financial aid office.  Applicants are notified of decisions within one month of being admitted.

Continuing students must apply for the continuation of an international scholarship for each academic year. Corresponding programs decide whether or not to maintain the same level of aid or adjust it for the next academic year, based on the academic performance of the student and availability of funds.
