The scholarship is designed to support the education of Persian-speaking women of any age or citizenship enrolled in a master of science or final year of a doctorate program studying STEM at the University College London. STEM is a recent department at UCL, which focuses on the interface between science, technology, engineering and math.

The inaugural scholarship will be £1500 ($2,000). Eligible applicants will be encouraged to submit their application for the 2018-2019 academic year to the foundation by February 1, according to the website of the foundation Persia.education.

Scholarship winners will be announced on May 3, marking the first birth anniversary of the accomplished professor.
