The vast majority of financial aid given by AUB is in the form of need-based grants. AUB awards financial aid grants to undergraduate students based upon the financial need of a family. Additional need-based aid is provided to all enrolled students in the form of student loans. In addition to need-based financial aid, AUB also offers special scholarships based on academic talent. These include full-tuition AUB merit scholarships and partial, small merit awards that supplement need-based grants.
AUB also offers graduate assistantships and a work-study program.
