Who are we?
IASF was started in 1993 by Dr. P. Ravi Sharma under the direction of the India American Cultural Association (IACA), a 501(c)(3) registered, non-profit, tax-exempt organization in the state of Georgia, USA. The goal of the Scholarship Fund was to provide financial assistance to high school students entering college. The scholarships are for Indian-American students, who are graduates of a school in Georgia.
The initial scholarships were given to two students, for a total of $1,500. In the ensuing 15 years, the program has expanded to provide financial aid to the tune of 25-30K annually to 12-15 students who are in financial need as well as recognize academic and extra-curricular excellence.
Dr. Sarma was chairman of the Fund from 1993 to 2002. Since then Dr. Suvrat Bhargave, Dr. Anuj Manocha and their team has provided continued and excellent leadership.
