Momeni Foundation is dedicated to providing scholarships to graduating high school students and full time college students of Iranian descent anywhere in the world.

The idea of providing scholarships to students of Iranian descent originated in 1984. In an afternoon of pondering about life and setting goals, I realized that without the benefit of scholarships I could not have achieved what I was achieving in my life. At that time, I added the establishment of an organization dedicated to advance education and providing scholarships to students, to my list of 20-year plan. 

In 1993, I started a small local scholarship program through Iranian Professional Society of Oregon. In 1998, wanting to expand the program beyond the borders of the City of Portland, Momeni Family Fund, as part of Oregon Community Foundation, was established. Momeni Family Fund was involved in supporting educational and charitable organizations throughout Oregon until 2001. In February 2001, Momeni Foundation was established as the final stage of evolution of the original plan. 

It is my hope that the recipients will also, some day, establish their own scholarship programs. 

Mojtaba Momeni 
President, Momeni Foundation
