August Memorial Scholarship Fund
The August Cause
American University of Afghanistan has reopened after last year’s devastating attack. One year on, the AUAF community of students, professors and staff continue the legacy of the seven students and a professor we lost that dark day in August.
To mark the commitment of these students to education and celebrate the potential of their promising lives cut short, AUAF is launching an international fundraising campaign.
The Campaign- Education Will Prevail
Beginning August 23, 2017, AUAF alumni and friends everywhere will have the opportunity to contribute to the August Memorial Scholarship Fund to offer full, four-year scholarships for new students to continue our fallen students’ and staff’s legacy.
The campaign is a manifestation of AUAF’s motto after the attack that “Education Will Prevail.” By helping us establish this scholarship fund, AUAF alumni and friends are supporting the bravery and commitment to knowledge that our students demonstrate by returning to class despite experiencing unimaginable horror in the attack.
The American University of Afghanistan
AUAF’s commitment to education -- and to educating the next generation of Afghanistan’s leaders -- is stronger than ever. We continue to work hard to expand our campus, refine our curriculum and offer classes in a safe environment that fosters rigorous academic inquiry.
We refuse to give into fear and intimidation and will continue to spread the light of knowledge. This campaign is about helping us pass the torch down to subsequent generations of AUAF students.
Our graduates go on to become leading public servants, entrepreneurs and civil society leaders. Among our students and alumni are deputy ministers, award-winning business owners and a Putlizer Prize winner. Since its first graduating class in 2010, AUAF has produced over 70 Fulbright scholars, among the highest for any university in the world.
AUAF students come from all 34 provinces of the country and include 47 percent women, the highest percentage in Afghanistan.
By supporting the August Memorial Scholarship Fund, you are enabling the University to continue its social mission at a time when operating costs have increased, not least because of demands for tighter campus security. Your support helps our social mission remain sustainable.
Our students, professors, our administrators, and staff continue their work every day. We ask that you support our work by making a gift to the August Memorial Scholarship Fund today. Any amount helps.
