Winners of the Fali Chothia Charitable Trust


Nov. 17, 2017

 
The Fali Chothia Charitable Trust is pleased to announce the winners of its 2017 scholarships:


Kashmin Dalal is working toward a degree in Psychology at Kent State University. Her ultimate goal is to obtain a Ph.D. and work as a clinical child psychologist. She has been involved in community service from a very young age, and last year went on a medical mission to Haiti. This year, she volunteered at Standing Rock reservation, running a camp for adolescents and children, and helping to build housing for their families.

Tanaz Karai is enrolled in the Master’s program in Deaf and Hard of Hearing/Elementary Education at the College of New Jersey. Ever since she can remember, Tanaz has wanted to be a teacher to make a difference in the lives of young children. In addition to participating in numerous workshops and been affiliated with organizations on campus, she has been a dedicated volunteer teacher at the Zoroastrian Association of Greater New York since she was in high school. She was awarded the Good Life Emblem Award from ZAGNY in 2013.

Dilshad Patel is working toward an MS in Exercise and Health Science at the University of Houston, Texas.  After studying classical Indian dance since she was 5, she became an instructor at the Shiamak Davar Institute for the Performing Arts. Her teaching experience led her to pursue dance as a means of therapy and healing. She has spent the last decade studying movement therapy—simultaneously incorporating its principles in new programs and workshops to help athletes, children, patients, seniors, and a host of other populations.

Khushmeen Sakloth, pursuing an MS in Chemical Engineering at the University of Washington, hopes to work as a computational or data scientist in the clean energy sector. She completed her prior education in India, always at or near the top of her class. She was active in various Zoroastrian youth acitivities in India, and is currently involved in several professional activities on campus.

Delshad Shroff will complete her Master’s program in Developmental Child Psychology at Columbia University’s Teacher’s College in May 2018. Delshad was one of two students who earned merit scholarships to study at the NY University of Abu Dhabi and has been an active volunteer with several schools and special needs programs as well as local Zoroastrian organizations in Chennai, India, as well as in New York.

Ferin Yazdani-Biyouki is seeking a medical degree at VCU School of Medicine. Ferin moved here from Iran when she was quite young, and remembering the sacrifices her family made for her, is determined to support her community as a medical professional. She has been heavily involved in the activities of the California Zoroastrian Center LA, the Persian American Society for Health Advancement (for which she led an effort to collect 30k to provide eye treatments to visually impaired individuals in Tajikistan), and the 7th World Youth Zoroastrian Congress.

The Fali Chothia Charitable Trust was established in 1988 to help provide scholarships and interest-free loans to needy zoroastrian students. Awards are based on financial need, educational achievement, and community service. The trust is established under the Zoroastrian Association of Metropolitan Washington Inc. (ZAMWI), and over the past 30 years has awarded scholarships to students from all parts of the U.S. and Canada.

To demonstrate solidarity and trust between organizations while serving community causes, the U.S. Chapter of the World Zoroastrian Organisation is once again joining the Fali Chothia Trust’s Scholarship Program by adding up to fifty percent to every scholarship we give from our trust’s resources. This partnership enables us to significantly increase the amount of our scholarships. The trust is grateful to the WZO U.S. Chapter, and thrilled that its support is resulting in a significant increase in the help we are giving to our young scholars.

We rely on donations. Please send your check payable to ZAMWI/Fali Chothia Charitable Trust, 10300 Farnham Drive, Bethesda MD 20814.

All donations made to the trust are tax exempt, and go directly toward the corpus of the fund. Individual members of the Board of Trustees absorb all administrative, mailing, and other fund-raising costs.
