Iranian American Alumni Chapter

We are thrilled to announce a special initiative by the Iranian American Alumni Chapter at UCI, and we're reaching out to our cherished community to rally together to support our students by raising funds for scholarships.

At the heart of our mission lies a deep commitment to fostering academic excellence and empowering the next generation of leaders. Many of our students face financial barriers that can hinder their educational pursuits. With your generosity, we can break down these barriers and ensure that deserving students have the opportunity to thrive academically and realize their full potential.

Your contribution will directly impact the lives of students at the University of California, Irvine, by providing them with the financial support they need to pursue their educational dreams. Whether it's covering tuition fees or purchasing textbooks, every dollar donated will make a meaningful difference in the lives of our scholars.

Together, we can create a ripple effect of positive change that extends far beyond the confines of our campus. By investing in education, we are investing in the future of our community, our nation, and our world.

Here's how you can get involved:
