IABA Scholarships – Opportunities for Law Students and Lawyers  

February 8, 2011 – Washington, D.C. 
Every year, the Iranian American Bar Association (IABA) issues one or more scholarships to law students to assist in their legal education.  The IABA Scholarship serves as one of the most important contributions IABA makes annually to assist its members nationwide.  It also serves as one of the most important moments when our members can help us give aid to law students in need. 

For Law Students: 

The deadline for this year’s scholarship is March 1, 2011.  To apply for IABA’s scholarship, or get more information, please contact IABA’s Scholarship Coordinator, Rebekah Azar Rashidfarokhi, at scholarship@iaba.us. 

 For Lawyers and IABA Friends: Please help donate to the scholarship.  You can donate by visiting this link.  https://web.memberclicks.com/mc/quickForm/viewForm.do?orgId=baa&formId=43693

IABA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.  In addition, all individuals or companies who donate over $200 will be listed on IABA’s donor website and acknowledged for their contribution.
If you cannot afford a donation over $200 and reside in the Orange County/Los Angeles or San Diego area, please attend one of our scholarship fundraisers occurring in the next two months.  
On February 26, 2011, the Orange County chapter of IABA will be hosting a scholarship fundraiser dinner featuring entertainment from K-Von and DJ Behmix.  Tickets may be purchased online at www.iabaoc.org.

We truly hope you contribute to the scholarship this year and allow us to acknowledge your help.  The IABA scholarship is the only scholarship that is dedicated to law students of Iranian origin.
