(it has all the details plus the application)
So, now that I have given you the facts, I want to highly encourage
all of you who meet the eligibility requirements to apply.
This is an amazing grant that could really help take a chunck out of
your student debt. The fellows are awesome people, and the conference
once a year in New York looks like it is going to be really fun. Please
pass this on to any Iranians you might know in other graduate programs.
Please feel free to contact me (Sanaz Hariri, firstname.lastname@example.org)
with any questions. I'd love to chat with you about it and help in any
way I can. There are recommendations needed, so you should get the process
I want Iranians to DOMINATE the Soros fellowships this year!
