AUS honours late professor with two scholarships

The American University of Sharjah (AUS) has established two scholarship funds, in response to suggestions by AUS students and alumni to honour the legacy of the late Dr Ibrahim El Sadek, former Associate Dean of the AUS College of Arts and Sciences, Gulf Today has reported. "This endowed scholarship fund will be devoted to meeting the needs of AUS undergraduate students. In order to encourage contributions to this fund, AUS will match the fund's annual revenue from its own scholarship funds, in order to increase its financial impact. Contributions may be as large or small as the donor determines," said Dr AUS Chancellor, Peter Heath.
