About Jasmine Jahanshahi

The Jasmine Jahanshahi Scholarship Award was established in memory of Jasmine Jahanshahi, a UCEAP and UC Berkeley student who participated in the 2010-2011 program at Sciences Po, in Paris, France.

Two scholarship awards in the amount of $2,500 each will be made yearly to students who have demonstrated academic excellence and a strong commitment to global issues and with a goal to foster deeper global connections.

"To truly understand a country – its social tensions, linguistic subtleties, culture, one must have a first hand account; one must spend a significant amount of time in the country."

-Jasmine Jahanshahi
