UBC Annual Giving
To honour their legacy, UBC has joined members of the Iranian-Canadian community in establishing the Iranian Student Memorial Award. This fund will provide awards annually to students in memory of those lost to this tragedy.
Many members of the UBC community were deeply affected by this tragedy. We wish to express our deepest sympathy and condolences to the families and friends of those who lost their lives, including Dr. Mehran Abtahi, Niloofar Razzaghi, Zeynab Asadi Lari and Mohammadhossein Asadi Lari.
“We hope that this new Iranian Student Memorial Award will help us to memorialize those we lost by providing new opportunities for students to flourish and succeed here at UBC.” – UBC President and Vice-Chancellor Santa J. Ono
