The Monttessuy Center for the Arts

In response to rising enrollments in the arts from both majors and non-majors alike, our next campus project will be the renovation of our former library building to create a new center for the arts, which will include two fine arts studios, expanded and improved classrooms, student exhibition spaces and the University's first auditorium. The center will prepare tomorrow’s leaders in creative and performing arts, business and interdisciplinary fields.

Student Scholarships


AUP awards over 4 million euros each year to students of all nationalities, enabling us to compete with other universities worldwide in attracting some of the most talented students. Nearly 45% of AUP students receive some form of financial aid.

Establishing funds for student scholarships is a critical, ongoing priority. Scholarships allow AUP to attract the world’s most talented students and providing them with financial aid is a key factor in our long-term success.

The Cultural Program

The Cultural Program is a hallmark of AUP’s unique approach to a global liberal arts education. Through study trips and cultural excursions to inspiring destinations, the Cultural Program takes learning beyond the classroom, encouraging global explorers to become lifelong learners. Your gift to the Coup de Pouce fund allows us to provide funding to students who would otherwise be unable to participate in these life-changing opportunities.

The generosity of the AUP community helps to fund five research centers. Each is devoted to addressing the big questions of our times from a multidisciplinary perspective, informed both by the scholarship of AUP students and faculty and by visiting scholars and experts who bring their research and perspectives to the AUP community.
