This Fund will support undergraduate and graduate Iranian American students, who exhibit financial need, as well as academic excellence.
To date, 39 scholarships have been awarded to undergraduate and graduate students attending three major universities in San Diego. It is important to note that the students who have received these scholarships have come to San Diego from various locations within California, as well as other states and Canada.
Beginning with the 2005-2006 academic year, the scope of scholarship awards will be extended to the universities and colleges in Southern California region. This will be followed by expansion for 2006-2007 to the State of California and 2007-2008 awards will become national.
