Sultana B. Hasan Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Sultana B. Hasan Memorial Scholarship was established by Zakia and Syed Tanvir Hasan of Mason, Ohio, in memory of Syed’s mother. Syed was six when he lost his father, a physician in the Indian Army. While Syed’s memories of his father are few, he remembers his mother as the true warrior of their family. In the years after her husband’s death, Sultana earned her town’s respect as the widow of an army and community physician. She single-handedly and fearlessly raised her children—always challenging Syed to work just a bit harder in school, explore the sciences, and push to his fullest potential. She sacrificed so she could send him to the best of local schools, later encouraging him to travel for higher education and opportunities. The Sultana B. Hasan Memorial Scholarship is based on student’s financial need and focuses on the area of healthcare (undergraduate majors leading to degrees in medicine, nursing, pharmacy, or allied healthcare fields). It is an opportunity for the Hasan family to honor their roots. It is also an opportunity for them to express their gratitude for Greater Cincinnati. Here, the Hasans raised two children who graduated from Mason High School.

The Sultana B. Hasan Memorial Scholarship Fund awards a minority student who is seeking a degree in medicine, nursing, pharmacy, or allied health.
