American University in Bulgaria: Full Scholarships Available for 1300 & Above on SAT
The American University in Bulgaria (AUBG) offers full scholarships to applicants who achieve a combined score of 1300 or higher on the Math and Critical Reading sections of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). Over $4,000,000 is available to deserving students, thanks to generous contributions by private and corporate donors.
Full scholarships will cover a 100 percent of tuition for four years and will be available to students entering AUBG in Fall 2011. Students who receive high SAT scores but do not meet the 1300 mark will be able to compete for partial scholarships ranging from 10 to 90 percent of tuition.
AUBG also awards scholarships to reward student achievements in various fields: athletics, the exact and social sciences, community service, and overall academic performance in high school. In Fall 2010, every sixth student was awarded a full scholarship for study at the University.
AUBG helps students pay for their education in several ways. Financial aid is based on both academic merit and financial need and will cover from 10 percent to almost 90 percent of tuition. Around 60 percent of enrolled students at AUBG receive financial aid, while there is a special, first year only award for new students. Many scholarship opportunities, for up to the full cost of education, are available for incoming and current students.
