Students who are awarded scholarships are expected to maintain exceptional academic performance while also acting as a model for other students. If a student fails to maintain a high level of academic performance or is found to have behaved in a way that damages the reputation of KUAS, their scholarship may be subject to revocation.

All documents submitted for application to KUAS will be used during scholarship screening, and applicants will be informed of the results of their enrollment application as well as their scholarship application at the same time.
