The majority of financial aid given by AUB is in the form of need-based grants that are used to offset tuition costs.
Grants are awarded to full-time undergraduate students based on a financial analysis of the information collected on the Financial Aid Application completed by a student and his/her family and from supporting documentation. Every attempt is made to treat all families equitably. The funds for need-based grants come directly from the university's budget demonstrating its commitment to having a socioeconomically diverse population.
AUB is also strongly committed to make education affordable to bright and talented young students in the country and the region through a variety of scholarships programs that are offered to undergraduate and/or graduate students. Some are only merit-based, others consider both need and achievement.
