Update on UC Jasmine Jahanshahi Memorial Scholarships

August 10, 2011

Dear UCEAP Campus and Systemwide Office Staff:

I am honored to announce the recipients of the inaugural Jasmine Jahanshahi Scholarships. Those were established to honor the memory of Jasmine Jahanshahi, a stellar UC Berkeley student who died tragically while participating in UCEAP’s Sciences Po Program in Paris.

I was pleased to see the extraordinary response to this first call. Over 130 applications were received, many documenting high academic achievement and a strong commitment to global issues. This is the standard of excellence, global awareness and engagement that Jasmine Jahanshahi exemplified.

I determined that for the inaugural year of this scholarship, UCEAP will allocate an additional $16,500 to the initial pool of $5,000, for a total of $21,500. The two Jasmine Jahanshahi Scholarships of $2,500 have been awarded as well as an additional 17 scholarships ($1,500, $1,000, and $500) for the 2011-12 year.
