We are glad to announce that the U.S. Department of State has awarded $5,000,000 grant to the American University of Iraq (AUIS) in Sulaimani! The grant will fund merit scholarships for AUIS students, who represent the Kurdish, Arab, Turkmen, Muslim, Yezidi, Christian, and even Syrian refugee communities in Iraq. Through AUIS, the United States is promoting a peaceful, prosperous future for Iraq and the IKR by providing this diverse group of future Iraqi leaders with a quality, American-style education. Professional skill development, critical thinking, tolerance, and community involvement are some of the hallmarks of education at U.S. universities. For more information, visit EducationUSA Erbil.
