Celeste Schenck Presidential Scholarship

107% of €1,000,000 goal
This campaign ended on July 31, 2022, but you can still make a gift to The American University of Paris by clicking here!

After 33 years in service to AUP, our own President Celeste Schenck is retiring. She has made a transformative impact on the University and has touched many of our lives directly as a professor, mentor and leader.

Though she is formally leaving her presidential role, her legacy will be forever recognized through the creation of the Celeste Schenck Presidential Scholarship Fund, which will provide permanent support for AUP students in the pursuit of their academics and goals.

Celeste's greatest passion is helping students, and we can't imagine a better way to honor her work than to establish this endowed student scholarship in her name. 

Contributing a gift of any size to this endowed scholarship fund will make a difference in the educational opportunities of current and future students.

We reached the $1,000,000!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the 60th-anniversary celebrations and the Celeste Schenck Presidential Scholarship. 

At the 60th Anniversary Fundraising Gala, generous donors from across the community contributed an additional $100,000 to the scholarship fund, taking us over our $1,000,000 goal. 

If you want to be part of this special, endowed fund, you still have time to make your contribution in the weeks to come.

Thank you!
