Student Voice found a big difference between the United States embassy in Baghdad and American University of Iraq-Sulaimani regarding naming the 20 full scholarships granted by the US embassy.
The US embassy, which is the owner of the grant, says that the scholarships is for the non-Kurdish students.
"While the university welcomes all qualified students, regardless of race, religion, gender, ethnicity, political affiliation or financial status, its student body is predominantly Kurdish," said the statement released by the US embassy in Baghdad.
On the other side, AUI-S says that the scholarships are for "Iraqi students from provinces outside the Kurdistan Region of Iraq" which is quite different from the statement of the US embassy.
US embassy's statement also points out that "
U.S. embassy funds the scholarships and its clear from the statement that it is for the non-Kurdish students.
AUI-S defines itself to be "private non-profit university offering a comprehensive American-style liberal arts education to all qualified students regardless of their affiliation or origin."
The statement issued by the U.S. embassy puts the integrity of the claim above under question.
