The Importance of Financial Aid
In recent years, we have steadily increased our financial aid budget and taken steps to ensure that our financial aid programs are fair and competitive. These efforts support our commitment to achieve a dynamic and diverse student body. This is what defines the AUB experience that our students enjoy and our alumni cherish.
Being able to offer more scholarships to qualified young men and women supports AUB’s mission to serve the peoples of the Middle East and beyond.
There are thousands of men and women on campus today like Jamil, Rachelle, Haig, Wisam, Nada, Mona and who rely on financial aid.
in 2015-2016 over $30 million in financial
assistance was provided to more than 3,200 students.
Although we are grateful and proud of what we have accomplished, there are still young men and women who do not receive the assistance they need to attend AUB. Our commitment to them and to the region that we serve is ongoing. We invite you to support our mission to serve the peoples of the Middle East and beyond by making a gift to AUB’s scholarship program.
There are many ways to give. You can make a secure online donation, mail a check payable to AUB and send to the New York or Beirut Office of Advancement, wire funds, contribute with stocks and securities, or make a pledge.

Reinvigorating Liberal Arts Education:
"It is not the purpose of our University to produce men who are doctors, men who are mechants, or men who are teachers; but we want to produce doctors who are men, merchants who are men, teachers who are men." - Dr. Howart Bliss, AUB's 2nd President.
The Liberal Arts Education stands at the core of AUB. Each student, and in order to graduate, needs to take courses in the humanities and social sociences. We aim at graduated citizens who won't only excel at the market place, but also make a difference in their societies. As our President Dr. Fadlo Khuri puts it, "an AUB graduate is not only trained for excellence in professional life,but groundedin critical thinking, opened-minded debate, and cultural capital, so that he or she can attain the level of integrity, service and civic responsibility that our societies so badly need."
Promoting Interdisciplinary Research Relevant to the Region:
At AUB, we recognize that today’s most pressing problems demand that scholars from different disciplines come together to integrate data, methodologies, perspectives, and concepts. A number of AUB professors from throughout the University are already collaborating informally and as members of organized research groups or teams on closely related subject areas such as the environment and energy. These collaborations enrich the educational experience that our students enjoy and benefit the communities in which we live and work.
Providing Medicine and Health Expertise and Services to Lebanon and the Region:
Since 1867, AUB has provided first class education in medicine and biomedical research while delivering quality and excellence in patient care. Accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCIA) on hospital accreditation, the AUB Medical Center (AUBMC) is the leading tertiary and quaternary care referral medical center for the Middle East region.
In April 2011, AUBMC announced a comprehensive plan for future growth detailing its vision to be the leading academic medical center in Lebanon and the region by delivering excellence in patient-centered care, outstanding education, and innovative research. In addition to a new 600-bed medical complex that will include both adult and pediatric hospitals, AUBMC will also establish specialized centers of excellence in a number of areas including oncology, neuroscience, and heart and vascular disease.
The Medical Center is also partnering with other medical institutions in the region and around the world to increase patient access and strengthen the delivery of health care. These efforts will ensure that AUB will be able to continue to serve the peoples of Lebanon and the region as it has done for more than 150 years.
