Persia Ansari Scholarship and Human Rights Day

An Online Scholarship Award Ceremony On Human Rights Day



On Friday, 10 December 2021, Persia Educational Foundation will mark Human Rights Day and formally announce the Abdolreza Ansari Scholarship.

Earlier this year, in honor of one of Persia Educational Foundation’s founding trustees, Persia established and began to accept donations for the Abdolreza Ansari Scholarship.

It was Mr. Ansari’s fervent belief that investing in youth education would further global prosperity. This philosophy and his illustrious career inspired the establishment of the Persia Educational Foundation, to support and empower Iranian youth and young professionals.

Mr. Ansari entered Iranian politics as a hard-working graduate, eager to help modernize his homeland and contribute towards its growth. It is therefore fitting that his legacy should live on in the form of a scholarship fund aimed towards Iran’s best and brightest, those dedicated to a life in public service and human rights.

Applications submitted by eligible Iranian descent students in a Master or Doctorate programme at an internationally accredited university in the UK or beyond will be reviewed by an independent panel to select the recipient.

To mark the inaugural award of this scholarship, and Human Rights Day coinciding with the first anniversary of Mr. Ansari’s passing, Persia will hold a webinar at 17:00 on Friday, 10 December 2021.

To register for this webinar co-hosted by our media partner, Kayhan London, please register today.
