Help now more than ever
American University of Technology has been serving students from middle-income to struggling families for over 20 years and is proud to have helped thousands of students fulfill their higher education needs and build successful careers.
We have been providing financial aid that averaged 32% discount on tuition fees during the years 2000-2012.
Over the years, however, the economic situation of Lebanon has increased the need of our students for higher financial aid, and during the year 2019-2020, AUT has given financial aid averaging 55% of tuition fees and has facilitated the payment of fees over 10 to 12 monthly installments.
Tuition had to be raised for the year 2021-22 so as AUT can meet its obligations and also offer a raise to its staff. Tuition per credit is now $265 for undergraduate studies and $315 for graduate studies. Students will continue to receive financial aid and get their payments installed over a period that can reach 12 months.
AUT had been able to sustain all financial aid burden by itself but today with the coronavirus pandemic, students lost their jobs and their families saw their income reduced drastically and are under an unprecedented financial stress. Their priorities now are towards securing food and we fear the education of their children does not fit into the current priorities. This would have a devastating effect on the future generations.
This highly critical situation has prompted AUT to launch a fund raising campaign- Hand In Hand- to close the deficit resulting from lack of students' tuition payment and to help students in need of financial aid. We need your support, whether you are alumni or friends concerned about the future of our students. We need it to keep offering quality education and the same academic support we have always provided.We need it so we don't deprive our students from what they rightfully deserve. Today we can secure the money needed by our students to complete this year, start the 2021-22 year with confidence and close the deficit so together we can be proud of our generosity.
HAND IN HAND we can make it!
