Our goal

We are creating this fund to raise money towards the Mohamed Magdi Taha Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship is in honor of our loved one, Mohamed Magdi Taha (2001 - 2022). Mohamed was a native of California and Khartoum, Sudan who was a rising junior at MIT. He passed tragically in August of 2022, and we are starting this fund to honor and further his legacy. Mohamed was a passionate young man who had deep love for his country and a special talent for poetry. He was studying Course 6-9 at MIT, which is Computer Science and Cognitive Sciences. He was brave and friendly and compassionate -- someone who was always willing to lend a helping hand and stand up for what was right. These qualities of an 'up-stander' are what we are looking for in future scholarship recipients. We are looking to create a scholarship to support students studying in the US who have interests in STEM and/or the arts. Scholarship amount would be $1,000-$2,000 and awarded annually to one or more recipients over the next 10-15 years.
