Mahindokht Rouhani Memorial Scholarship

Do you have a wish to improve the human condition as the first in your family to go to college?

In 2011, Gwinnett Tech Program Director of Economics, Elham Rouhani established a scholarship in memory of her aunt. The family created this opportunity for first generation college students in a Health Science degree program to help with school expenses, inclduing tuition, books or program supplies.

So far, two GTC students are making the world a better place thanks to the help this scholarship provided to them!
