Bulgaria has passed a long way in its strive for democracy and is now an independent country and a member of the European Union. The American University of Bulgaria celebrates Bulgaria’s hard-won independence and wishes to recognize the accomplishments of youth all over the world that demonstrate the attributes required to uphold and maintain those civic principles required for a free and open society.
