Investing in THE development of future global citizens

YAS Foundation provides educational scholarships and professorships to assist gifted students to study at colleges and universities in the United States and abroad. Students must demonstrate merit, financial need, substantial involvement in the Iranian community and determination to make a positive impact on the world.

A key component of our effort is empowering students who possess special skills and talents based on quality, character, and background. Our mentorship effort includes think tank sessions, advisement, and efforts to ensure students have the tools they need to grow in fostering global citizenship.

The support of YAS Foundation does not end at graduation. Dr. Rouzbeh Yassini continues to be in contact with students through ongoing outreach, staying apprised of their accomplishments and championing important life inflection points.
