 “Please continue the scholarship Program. Funding an Iranian-American scholarship provides encouragement for younger generation to motivate and involve themselves in their studies knowing that their culture will support their achievements and drive for success.” Hoda Pishvaie -class of 2001

 “I think it is a very good idea to encourage our children. They will see and meet new people. I also think that we have someone in this country who think and cares about us.” 

Payam Samizadeh, class of 2001

 Neda Maghboulen, class of 2001

“IAPSO scholarship program is a great opportunity for young Iranians to be recognized for their achievements. Year after year I am impressed with this program, as it develops and expands.”

 Zeina Ghezel, class of 1995

“ By providing an opportunity for young Iranians to be recognized for their achievements, IAPSO links the cultural gap between Iranian youth to their rich history. I believe these scholarship awards motivate applicants to reflect on their culture and encourage them to express their thoughts concerning their identity. I feel gratitude and pride that such an organization exists within the Portland metropolitan area. I hope that the youth of this community will continue in the efforts and endeavors of this organization in the future. “

Targol Saedi, Class of 1997
