Ajabshir International Research Scholarship Award

The Ajabshir International Research Scholarship Award was founded by the Ajabshir family to support international student researchers pursuing graduate degrees at Florida International University. As a family of immigrants, the Ajabshirs’ understand the importance of supporting international scholars and have made a donation to Florida International University to establish scholarship awards to empower international students of Iranian descent with financial difficulties.

‘‘We believe in the power of knowledge, education, and diversity’’ said the Ajabshir family. ‘‘We feel FIU is perfectly positioned to empower the next generation of researchers at the international level and we hope this gift enables strong cohorts of international students to achieve success with a sense of community and support.’’

The award may be utilized for research, travel to conferences, and/or any other academic-related expenses for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022.
