Our scholarship program has been suspended for the 2019-2020 school year. 


AUAF values education and the role it plays in helping young Assyrians build a better future for themselves and their community. As the nation’s largest not-for-profit organization supporting Assyrian American higher education, we have awarded more than a million dollars in scholarships over the years.

We are currently reviewing our scholarship program, and exploring ways to improve upon it before it is reintroduced next year in the summer of 2020. Please join our mailing list to get the latest updates. Best wishes for a wonderful academic year.

We continue to support education

  • In December of 2016, we awarded $60,000 to the Assyrian Aid Society to help fund Assyrian schools located in northern Iraq. Our funds were used to pay teacher salaries, provide transportation to underprivileged Assyrian Students, and assist with renovations at various schools.
  • In January of 2017, we awarded $32,675 to University of Cambridge Modern Assyrian Studies to continue to fund research by Ph.D. Candidate Nineb Lamassu.
  • In January of 2017, we awarded $5,500 to Northeastern Illinois University to support Amanda Slefo secure an ELL endorsement in order to address the needs of local Assyrian students.
