Scholarships

A major activity of The Society of Iranian American-Women for Education (SIAWE) is to provide scholarships to qualified college or university students to enhance their educational opportunities. Each year a number of students are selected based on available funding, the number of applicants and their qualifications to receive an SIAWE’s scholarship through the school they attend.

The scholarship recipients do not receive any cash rewards from SIAWE; instead the award money is credited to the students’ account at their enrolling school to be used toward their tuition, fees and books for the fall and spring semesters. At the end of each academic year any unused scholarship funding is returned to SIAWE to be redistributed into the scholarship fund for future candidates.




Currently SIAWE offers scholarships at the following nine schools:
