REZVAN FOUNDATION FOR EXCELLENCE
The Rezvan Foundation for Excellence was founded by Dr. Ehsan Rezvan to honor the legacy of his late father, Dr. Ahmad Rezvan. An accomplished and highly-respected pathologist in Iran, Ahmad suffered the sudden loss of his father at the age of fourteen. Although culture dictated that he immediately quit school and become ‘head of household,’ he quietly continued his studies with tremendous determination while still fulfilling his duties to his grief-stricken family.
Thanks to an unexpected loan from a compassionate Uncle and an unstoppable determination to succeed, he was able to attend the most prestigious university in Iran. An incredibly honorable and generous man, Dr. Ahmad spent the rest of his life seeking ways to help others just as his Uncle had once helped him. His lifelong passion for learning fueled his conviction that the completion of higher education is not only the key to success, but the best way to use one’s knowledge to be of service to humanity.
The mission of the Rezvan Foundation is to support the educational pursuits of exceptionally talented young students who have shown a determination to succeed despite the crippling loss of one or more parent, removal from their parents’ home, or time spent in foster care.
It is our hope that Rezvan scholars will continue to pay it forward and keep the generous spirit of Dr. Ahmad Rezvan and his family alive for generations to come.
