Sponsors of the AUC Scholarship Fund
The ASF awards scholarships to talented students who require financial support to study at AUC. With the AUC Scholarship Fund (ASF) we aim to further diversity and excellence in AUC’s student body.
The AUC Scholarship Fund (ASF) is sponsored by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the University of Amsterdam, the AUC Student Association (AUCSA) and the AUC Alumni Association (AUCAA).
Public and private sponsors
University of Amsterdam & Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
The global city of Amsterdam with its two major research universities is the perfect context where excellence and diversity can meet very naturally. Through the ASF we ensure that every talented student can benefit from this.
Amsterdam University College Student Association (AUCSA)
Offering a welcoming and inclusive social environment is the Amsterdam University College Student Association’s goal. As the main organiser of AUC’s social life, we believe that diversity is a fundamental component of a thriving university social experience. The ASF provides the opportunity to enrich and further contribute to the global nature of AUC’s community; and thus, we are more than happy to contribute.
AUC Alumni Association (AUCAA)
The Amsterdam University College Alumni Association (AUCAA) is committed to maintaining the connection between AUC graduates with each other and with the college. Like none other, AUC alumni know the opportunities AUC provides. With its slogan Excellence and Diversity across the Globe, it remains committed to providing tomorrow’s students with the opportunities today’s alumni received, by strengthening the AUC community, both at home and abroad and therefore it supports the ASF.

Donors can show commitment to aiding the development of the global leaders of tomorrow and simultaneously promote their brand.

The scholarship size and conditions are negotiable and can be tailored to suit the partner’s interest, financial capacity, and terms and conditions of the donation.
