Richmond-Haydar Scholarship

Collage of International Students

This scholarship was created by family and friends of the late Dr. Mossie J. Richmond, Jr., former vice president for Student Affairs, and the late Dr. Afak Haydar, former director of International Programs.

Dr. Richmond and Dr. Haydar played instrumental roles in the internationalization of the ASU campus during the 1980s and 1990s. Understanding the need to recognize and reward international students for academic achievement, the scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate and a graduate student who demonstrate achievement and leadership both inside and outside the classroom.
