Rahimeen Ahmad Scholarship Fund

The fund aims to provide a 100% scholarship for at least 1 female student for a four year undergraduate degree at BNU, on an ongoing basis.

Rahimeen (May God grant her the highest levels of Paradise) was a brilliant, empathic dreamer with many plans to give back to Pakistan. In particular, she believed education to be a key vehicle for both personal growth and social progress.

In this spirit she continuously sought opportunities to learn, both, inside and outside the classroom. She strove for knowledge not just for herself but also to enrich others. Rahimeen’s family and friends hope this scholarship will continue Rahimeen’s light, pass on her torch and fulfill her dreams of helping others actualize their potential through the gift of education.
