Dear Mr. Farshid Farhat,
On behalf of Dr. Manouchehr Farkhondeh, President of the Iranian American Academics and Professionals (IAAP) and the entire organization, I would like to congratulate you on your outstanding academic success as well as the invaluable service to the Iranian-American community. We are also delighted to inform you that you have been selected as one of the recipients of IAAP’s Scholarship Awards for 2017.
We look forward to the opportunity to congratulate you in person and present you the Award Certificate and the accompanying check at our special gathering on June 24, 2017 (Information of the ceremony is posted at http://iaadc.net/).
We ask that you kindly acknowledge receipt of this email at your earliest convenience and be prepared to introduce yourself and provide a short background on the program you are in and any studies or project(s) you might be working on for a total of 3 to 4 minutes.
You will be among our honored guests, and as such exempt from making the customary fee, but to order enough food for everyone, we request that you register for the event at your earliest convenience, if not done so already. Your guests, if any, are also welcomed and expected to RSVP early but are required to pay the nominal dinner fees.
In case you are truly unable to participate in the ceremony, your certificate and the check can be given to a designated person provided the receipt of your notification by Tuesday, June 20th at the latest, or they can be mailed to you at a specified address. Also, in case you are unable to be with us in person, please make sure to send us a short video on the information we requested on the third paragraph with the notification by Sunday June 18th as well.
