The AUA set up the “AUA Scholars Award” (AUASA) in March 2018 with the purpose of increasing the mobility of scholars among the AUA member institutions. The Award is open to all faculty members and researchers of the AUA universities. The AUA provides financial support to scholars who wish to conduct short-term academic visits at another overseas AUA university. Scholars are encouraged to take this opportunity to advance research, share knowledge, conduct field study or establish international academic links in the community of AUA. Until now, there have been 28 scholars awarded. From the feedback and comments of the scholars who have completed their visit, we believe both scholars and participating universities benefit a lot from this program.
