Why Persian Language Scholarship Award:

Bilingualism and Multilingualism always give you an edge over others. A person proficient in more than one language is a valuable asset to the society. She/he could work as interpreters, translators in some globally reputed institutions

The study of Persian Language can mean a broad range of career possibilities and special opportunities available only to you as a linguist.

Your studies in Persian may open many global doors, some of which you never even knew existed. There are countless opportunities for travel, translation, work in political affairs and peace-making, literature writing, and teaching which will only be available to the bi-lingual student in Persian and English.

The four-year single subject Persian degree program at selected Iranian Universities not only offers the students the opportunity to study the Persian language in-depth and intensively but also to focus on the literature and culture of a vast geographic area extending beyond the borders of modern Iran and into Central Asia and the Caucuses.
