Student Funding

If your academic journey includes the study of Iran or the Persian Gulf region, we encourage you to explore student funding opportunities. The Sharmin and Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies offers undergraduate and graduate student funding to support transformative experiences that deepen your understanding of this fascinating part of the world.

Funding may be available for:

  • Research Projects: Push the boundaries of your independent research and achieve new insight, wherever your interests lead.
  • Language Studies: Immerse yourself in the Farsi language and add new depth and dimension to your studies.
  • Conferences: Broaden your horizon at an event. (The Center also supports faculty who attend or develop conferences.)
  • Internships: Offset housing, living costs, travel and other expenses incurred as part of an unpaid internship.
