Why give to AUS?

Student Scholarships

Scholarships allow students in need to obtain a quality education at AUS. By donating to the Student Scholarships Fund, you will be supporting AUS in its progress to ensure that students from all backgrounds looking to fulfil their academic potential will be able to access AUS’s high quality programs in Switzerland. Reserves from the Scholarship fund will be used to support the student in need with their tuition and other expenses that may arise during their studies.

Academic Research

Supporting our academic research will enable our faculty to engage with businesses and organizations in our local area to conduct impactful research to change the world.

Study Abroad and Internships

The AUS team highly advises its students to do internships during their studies and we support them with the internship search. Our students are keen to develop themselves throughout their time at AUS however at times internships are remunerated whereas interns only receive some pocket money which may not cover all their expenses. By supporting the Study Abroad and Internship Fund donors will allow students to sustain themselves during these internships. Students will then be able to put into practice the theories that they have learned in class, allowing them to develop personally and professionally, whether in Switzerland and around the world.

Community Initiatives

The surrounding community plays an important role to AUS. At AUS we are proud to support our local community and encourage our students to engage in the culture of Switzerland as much as possible. Your support of our community initiatives will allow AUS students to develop and run community focused projects in and around La Tour-de-Peilz. Funds raised for community initiatives will be used towards organizing and supporting community projects such as, networking evenings, sports events and student-led community projects and initiatives.
