William Jefferson Clinton Scholarship 2021/2022 at the American University in Dubai [U.S. Students Only]

Deadline: November 1, 2021

Applications are open for the William Jefferson Clinton Scholarship 2021/2022 at the American University in Dubai. The William Jefferson Clinton Scholarship at AUD seeks to further the goals of the Clinton Foundation to strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence.

In partnership with The American University in Dubai, the program will provide American students based in the US the opportunity to expand their educational and cultural horizons by studying in the Arab world. President Clinton gave public recognition to this during his keynote Address at AUD’s Fifth Commencement (June 2002) in which he cited the multi-cultural composition of AUD’s student body consisting of over one hundred nationalities, as a microcosm of Dubai’s multi-ethnicity. In this spirit, the Clinton Presidential Foundation and AUD have established this program to encourage others to experience this diversity.
