The Daanish Khan Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to two graduating Emerson students who reflect Daanish’s spirit and who express an interest in science or social justice, which were among Daanish’s passions. Applicants are invited to describe, in 500 words or less, a moment in which they were able to see their efforts make a difference, and to explain how their future studies will empower them to affect society on a larger scale.
