The Amin Family Scholarships were established in memory of Mandan Amin by her children. In 2019, WAEF awarded
Amin Family Scholarships.
This year, the Amin family is adding a
NEW $1,000 scholarship!
Mandan Amin began her life in Iran and learned the importance of education at an early age. Her
love of science and medicine
paired with strong ambition led her to follow an unconventional path, moving to Tehran and later to Germany and finally the United States to follow her dreams. Mandan was a person who pushed her children and others to be their best selves. She believed that everyone had some talent and through education and hard work, they could realize their own American Dream.
This scholarship supports future nursing students who have the desire and ability to continue their education post-graduation but do not have the financial means to do so. This nursing scholarship is inspired by Patty Amin’s career in nursing and aims to support a student who wishes to pursue a career in nursing.
