Education for Leadership in Crisis Scholarship program (ELC)

Undergraduate Scholarships for Afghan StudentsThe American University of Beirut (AUB) is pleased to announce the Education for Leadership in Crisis Scholarship program (ELC) to support the education of qualified female students from Afghanistan. The program aims to offer undergraduate merit-based scholarships to 16 women who will be enrolled at AUB. This program is designed around AUB’s strong liberal arts foundation, with an emphasis on developing leadership skills during protracted crises.

The scholarship covers four year of full tuition, room and board fees, and international travel expenses for students to enter the Freshman year and graduating in their senior year. This rigorous academic program will provide the students with excellent academic grounding to become life-long learners and contributors in their communities, while allowing the students to participate in a wide range of co-curricular activities designed to foster leadership and critical thinking. Upon graduation, students benefiting from this scholarship are required to Afghanistan and become agents of positive change in the public, private and non-profit sectors.

AUB is pleased to collaborate with Women for Afghan Women (WAW) to raise awareness about this scholarship and encourage students to apply from all over Afghanistan.

ELC at AUB

At AUB, students will be exposed to an array of pedagogical approaches (lectures, seminars, labs, blended learning, and independent projects), and learn to use different modes of analysis, which will enhance their verbal, interactive, analytical, and experimental skills. This rigorous approach, and the requirements of AUB’s general education program, will provide the ELC students with superior academic structure and support. The program will offer leaders through a supplemental “Leadership Program” that includes: (1) Trainings in democracy, civic engagement, and leadership; (2) participation in intensive workshops on conflict resolution and regional issues; (3) community service opportunities; (4) internships to provide intensive public/private sector experiences; (5) a senior-year capstone civic service project relevant to the student’s communities, and (6) exposure to cultural diversity and the forces of globalization by interactions with both fellow students and regional leaders from Lebanon and other countries of the Middle East.

This program directed by Dr. Carmen Gehafrom the Faculty of Arts and Sciences is part of AUB’s broader commitment to fostering inclusion through its LEAD Initiative.
