Al Akhawayn University values research and publication by its faculty. In order to support its Faculty, AUI offers Research Grants to assist in covering the costs of such research needs as travel expenses, materials acquisition, and conference participation. These grants are available for short to medium length projects of up to three years, and can be used to fund small to medium size projects independently, or as a springboard to begin larger projects which will later require external funding. Please click here for further details of the Research Grants.
