Iran, which was once the birthplace of the Persian Empire – the oldest and largest empire in the world – undoubtedly has one of the richest histories and cultures in the entire world. In an attempt to spread the word of the abundant Iranian culture, the Houtan Foundation offers scholarship to students from all origins – Iranian and non-Iranian – who have high academic performance and proven interest in promoting Iran’s great culture, heritage, language and civilization. The candidates for the award must demonstrate leadership ability and the desire to make a difference in the society where they reside. The Houtan Foundation has a strong interest in each of these students’ achievements throughout the scholarship period and beyond, as the foundation’s goal is to participate in each student’s success.
Currently, one award of $3500 per year will be given toward a graduate school education for the selected applicant. The award is offered for a combined fall and spring semester. The application is acceptable if it is received no later than the 1st of June preceding the award year.
Dr. Mina Houtan has always been interested in helping others advance through higher education. Read what drives Dr. Houtan to help students realize their true potential.
Please join us in reaching out and supporting those who have a love for Iran and who will passionately reflect the richness of Persian civilization around the world for generations to come.
