The Alavi Foundation dispersed $35,000 today to the Hartford Seminary, located in Hartford, CT. The grant was made in an effort to support the courses of Dr. Mahmoud Ayub on Shia Islam.
The Alavi Foundation encourages universities in North America to offer courses on Persian language, Iranian studies and the Islamic culture with a focus on Shi'ite studies. Alavi Foundation grants are instrumental in building the continuity and quality of such higher education programs.
