Persia educational Foundation was formed to support Iranian descent students studying at UK universities. It launched its first STEM scholarship, the Persia Mirzakhani Scholarship for Woman in STEM, in September 2017 in association with the top UK research university, UCL.
It is now expanding its scholarship scheme to enable all Iranians living in the UK to support the younger generation studying at UK universities.
As part of this effort, Persia is launching its gifting program. Gifting in wills is the perfect way to advance education among younger Iranians and advance both the Iranian community and the greater society here in the UK and beyond. The monies left in wills to Persia Educational Foundation will go towards offering scholarships to deserving students selected b y our independent academic panel of experts. The scholarship can be named after the donor, in honour of a person chosen by the donor, or as part of our general scholarship scheme.
What will a gift in my will to Persia scholarships achieve?
Leaving a gift in your Will to Persia will help to build a better future for Iranian students, many of whom despite high academic attainment, are unable to pay for their fees at UK universities.
A gift in your will, enables Persia and its independent academic panel to fund education of the most qualified students, both in terms of their academic attainments, as well as their upright character in relation to their own self, community as well as the larger society.
