The OSI Scholarship program is administered upon an agreement between the American University in Bulgaria and the AUBG Program Coordinators in the eligible countries. All OSI Financial Awards from 2010-2011 will be Full and Partial Awards, and will be given preferably to good students who otherwise would not be able to cover the full costs of their education:
Full Awards are called OSI Scholarships and are limited in number. They cover tuition, residence hall and student activity fees at AUBG. All students who receive an OSI Scholarship are expected to cover the cost of food, books, travel, visas and residence permits, and health insurance. These scholarships cover the eight-semester period required to complete an AUBG degree provided that the recipient maintains the required cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher.
Partial awards are need based OSI-funded partial financial aid awards on top of AUBG need and merit based financial aid awards.
