Your Annual Gift

The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund of The American University of Paris is the primary means by which alumni, parents, faculty, and staff provide financial support to the University. The fund provides money for academic and need-based scholarships, as well as study trip grants.



Scholarships provide much-needed funds to students and allow us to increase the cultural and economic diversity that is unique to our community. An average scholarship of €9,500 enables us to compete with other universities worldwide in attracting some of the most talented students. Make a gift today and take part in transforming the lives of the next generation of students at AUP.

Coup de Pouce Fund (Study Trips)

Many alumni tell us that study trips are a life-changing component of the academic experience at AUP. Grants of just around €400 take our students outside of the classroom and into real-life situations in various cities around the world. Support academic study trips through our Coup de Pouce Fund and bring students out of the classroom to participate in a life-changing component of the experience of AUP.
