Farzaneh Brothers Give Back

Jalal and Mohammad Farzaneh
Thanks to a generous gift from brothers Jalal and Mohammad Farzaneh, students, staff and faculty at Oklahoma State University will be able to expand their knowledge in the area of Iranian and Persian Gulf studies.  

IPGS Professorships

The Farzanehs generous gift and additional matching funds will support a faculty chair and four professorships in Iranian and Persian Gulf studies. The faculty members selected for these endowed positions could come from any college at OSU.  


The annual support these funds provide will allow the honorees to explore their disciplines--whether that is the liberal arts, engineering, agriculture or another discipline--from the perspective of Iran and the Persian Gulf.
