AUC Scholarship Fund Mission
Stichting AUC Scholarship Fund (ASF) supports excellence and diversity in the AUC student body by facilitating access to the AUC programme for talented and underrepresented students. The ASF scholarship recipients and Talent Fellows enrich AUC’s community by diversifying the student body and bringing a broad depth of knowledge, experiences, and thoughts. In a multicultural city such as Amsterdam, it is essential that outstanding underrepresented students are not only invited to join AUC’s selective honours programme, but are granted the means to participate. Through the fellowships and scholarships offered by the ASF, talented students are able to work toward academic success and realise their enormous potential. Donations from a variety of sponsors and stakeholders support the ASF, and together with AUC, the ASF empowers the next generation of changemakers and international leaders. The AUC Scholarship Fund is an independent, separate foundation (stichting) run by the ASF Board.
