“We are keen to encourage creativity and a rich sense of passion in design while bringing the best talent in to AUE, and supporting and nurturing that talent throughout the academic process,” he added.

Students awarded the “AUE Presidential Design Talent Scholarship” will be offered 30% to 50% tuition scholarship for their four years at AUE (depending on their major area of study and talent capacity), and will also be required to participate in design department activities at the American University in the Emirates from time to time.
