Recipients of Iranian American Scholarship Fund Scholarships Announced

Iranian American Scholarship Fund (IASF) has awarded 2009-2010 scholarships to fifteen Iranian-American students, both Graduates and Undergraduates. 

IASF is a volunteer-administered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which provides scholarships to full-time students of Iranian heritage attending undergraduate and graduate schools in the United States who exhibit academic excellence, as well as financial need and a commitment to community service.

Founded in 1997 by a small group of philanthropic-minded individuals in San Diego, California, IASF began as a "Mother Fund" at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), creating the first University scholarship for Iranian- American students supported by the Iranian community.

Since then, IASF has grown into an independent non-profit organization which awards scholarships throughout the nation to students of Iranian ancestry.  IASF does not provide scholarships for schools outside the U.S.
