This #GivingTuesday, November 27, 2018, AUP joined the global movement to celebrate generosity and encourage philanthropy as we supported #OneMoreScholar at AUP.

Every year, scholarships make it possible for AUP to welcome Global Explorers from diverse cultural and social backgrounds who might otherwise not be able to attend the University. Scholarships are made possible in part by the generosity of others — AUP alumni, parents and friends around the world and here in Paris whose support makes a difference each day to our community. 

On #GivingTuesday all members of the AUP community came together to supporto #OneMoreScholar. All gifts were added to the financial aid resources of the University, providing additional funds to recruit students who require financial assistance in order to attend AUP.

In the end, we were supported by enough members of our community to offer two new scholarships to AUP students. What a wonderful thing to know we will be able to offer two more scholarships to deserving students. Thank you to everyone who contributed to making #OneMoreScholar such a success!

If you weren’t able to make your gift on November 27, we will be leaving our fundraising page open until Friday, December 7 Midnight EST, so it’s not too late to support scholarships at AUP.

Your Impact

At the heart of AUP’s strategic vision is its extraordinary diversity of cultures, nationalities, languages, ethnicities and faiths among both students and faculty. We are committed to ensuring that the transformative learning that takes place in our small classrooms, where students and faculty from all over the world engage in dialogue in order to negotiate differences, including students of all backgrounds and financial capacity. A student's financial realities should not determine whether or not they receive a world class education.

    • 44%
      of our students receive financial aid
    • 32%
      received scholarship awards based on demonstrated academic excellence and financial need
    • 17*
      were awarded our highest scholarship award

*all figures are reflective of the 2017-18 academic year

Making a gift to our to scholarships fund helps ensure that our community continues to reflect the world at large— and that all our students benefit from our unique environment brimming with diverse perspectives.

We hope you will join AUP alumni, parents and friends around the world this Giving Tuesday in demonstrating your school pride by helping us spread the word so we can support #OneMoreScholar.
