Persian/Iranian Studies Receives Grant


The PARSA community foundation has awarded $150,000 to PSU to strengthen the Persian/Iranian Studies program. The grant will help to hire an Iranian scholar in residence to advise the University on how to develop a stronger Iranian Studies program. Complementing this are other grant-funded initiatives to create more engagement with the community, promote the arts and culture of Iran, organize PARSA lecture series, provide funds for faculty research, hire an events coordinator, and bring an Iranian artist to the campus.
