Mohamed Magdi Taha was a beloved young man who passed away too soon in August of 2022.

Mohamed was a native of California and Sudan and was a rising junior at MIT studying computer science when he passed away. Mohamed was passionate and had a deep love for his country as well as a special talent for poetry. He was brave, compassionate, and always willing to help others and stand up for what was right. Mohamed was a graduate of Khartoum International Community School (KICS). He was an advocate of a free and fair Sudan for all. He participated in activities like MUN (Model United Nations) and enjoyed playing soccer and other sports. He is survived by his parents, three sisters, and four nephews.

This scholarship seeks to honor the life of Mohamed Magdi Taha by supporting students who possess similar qualities and are also ‘up-standers’ in their communities.

Any Black undergraduate students who are interested in studying STEM or the arts may apply for this scholarship but preference will be given to students from Sudan. 

To apply, tell us how you are an ‘up-stander’ and how you plan to use your voice.
