Merit-Based Scholarship

A Merit-Based Scholarship is awarded to a student for excellent study results, fulfilling conditions set forth by the President and published in the Scholarship Policy.

Every term, AAU will disburse on the Merit Based Scholarship 5.0% of tuition revenues to be collected from degree seeking students in the given term (MBS fund). The MBS applies to AAU tuition. It does not apply to AAU fees and University of London tuition and fees.

AAU degree programs

The Merit Based Scholarship (MBS) can only be awarded to degree seeking students in AAU degree programs who completed at least 5 courses for credit during their previous active semester at AAU and have no “Incomplete.” Out of the 5 courses at least 4 had to be taken in the previous obligatory term (i.e. Spring or Fall term). The MBS will be awarded at the beginning of every active term, using the actual cumulative GPA.

LLB and Certificate programmes

MBS can only be awarded to LLB and Certificate students who completed 4 year-long courses (or equivalent combination of semester and year-long courses) for credit during their previous active academic year at AAU. The MBS will be awarded for the whole academic year at its beginning and applies to all courses taken in the given academic year.

Conditions Scholarship level
Students with GPA > 3.9 or UK numerical GA > 68 100% off tuition
Top students according to their cumulative GPA (or equivalent numerical GA) not eligible for 100% scholarship as long as scholarship funds are available. In the event of the same GPA (GA) students are ranked according to the number of credits earned at AAU (the more credits the higher rank). If the last rank allowing for MBS eligibility is tied, all students in the tied rank are awarded scholarship even if the disbursed amount exceeds the MBS fund. 50% off tuition

For each academic year, the scholarship covers the tuition of the program’s 4 (four) core courses, including but not limited to: Reporting I & II, Media in a Democracy, Digital Tools for New Media, Visual Culture, Popular Culture & Media Theory.

After being awarded the scholarship, the student(s) automatically become a member of the editorial team and continue to contribute to the magazine for the following academic year. The scholarship may be divided among more than one student based on their contribution in the past and future.

Candidates for The Alan Levy Journalism Scholarship must be currently enrolled in or have successfully completed the degree program’s required courses Reporting I and Reporting II. In terms of contribution to the student magazine named Lennon Wall (both print and online), candidates are identified most importantly by:

  • their quality of writing articles
  • other contributions such as management, photography, proofreading, graphic design, social media, and website
  • Winners of the scholarship should not have significant internship/job responsibilities with other outside or on-campus organizations, because of the time commitment required for Lennon Wall responsibilities. Especially, to avoid conflict of interest, winners should not also be interning for or employed by the AAU Marketing Department.

    The scholarship must be applied for in writing and submitted to Tony Ozuna, the Dean of the School of Journalism by June 1st of the relevant academic year. The winner(s) are chosen by the Dean, the current Editor-in-Chief, and Journalism faculty, including the lecturers for the required Introduction to Reporting classes.
