Richmond-Haydar Scholarship

Collage of International Students

The Richmond-Haydar Memorial Scholarship for International Students 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.
