Scholarship Conditions

Iran Arbabi Scholarships may be used to supplement existing benefits from the student’s college or university, or from other foundations or organizations. Recipients may use the scholarship to cover the costs of tuition, fees, room, and board. Funds are dispersed directly to the college or university.
Financial need may be taken into consideration in awarding a scholarship. If the Scholarship Committee determines that financial need will be taken into consideration, the applicant may be required to provide financial information at a later time. Such financial information would include, but necessarily be limited to, federal income tax returns of the applicant. If the applicant is claimed as a dependent on the federal income tax return of another person, then that other person’s financial resources will be considered in assessing financial need. DO NOT INCLUDE COPIES OF FEDERAL TAX RETURNS WITH THE APPLICATION PACKET. IF THEY ARE SUBSEQUENTLY REQUIRED, THE APPLICANT WILL BE SO ADVISED.
A minimum of 1 student will be granted an Iran Arbabi Scholarship and will receive $2000.00 for the 2017-2018 school year ($1000.00 for Fall 2017 semester and $1000.00 for Spring 2018 assuming the GPA requirement of 3.0 and full-time status is maintained). The Iran Arbabi Scholarship is for the 2017-2018 school year only. ICEC reevaluates the community needs, its funding resources, and adjusts this program on a yearly basis.
A recipient’s scholarship can be revoked if the student:
• fails to graduate from high school;
• fails to enroll in an institution of higher education in the year for which the scholarship was awarded;
• fails to comply with the rules, regulations or conditions of the institution the student attends; or
• receives the scholarship through error or contrary to law.
Retroactive payment of the scholarship is not permitted.
