The Sedaghat Scholarship for First-Generation American Achievers

Go beyond your dreams

Immigrants are the lifeblood of America, enriching our nation in countless ways. They not only brighten our cultural tapestry and foster tolerance by introducing us to new cuisines, traditions and languages, but propel our economy and technological advancements forward by introducing us to new ideas. Immigrants contribute significantly

to our workforce, filling gaps in the labor market and assuming essential roles that benefit society at large. They support the growth of various industries, from agriculture to healthcare, helping to sustain our economic vitality.

The immigrant experience is far from easy. Their resilience and determination embody the values upon which this nation was built, reminding us that the American Dream is alive and well and that this country remains “the shining city upon a hill”.
