International House is pleased to announce the establishment of the Kamyar Jabbari Fellowship Fund. The fund provides fellowships at International House for academically-qualified graduate students studying at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. The fellowship award honors former resident of International House and former member of the International House board of governors, Kamyar Jabbari, MBA’79 who died on April 8, 2019. This fellowship has been made possible by the generous support of a group of fellow International House and UChicago alumni including William Bartholomay, MBA’79, Mazin Safar, MBA’77, Stephan Schoess, MBA’78, PhD’82, and Theo Vermaelen, MBA’76, PhD’80. The fellowship celebrates the life of Kamyar Jabbari and the life-long friendships begun when they were resident members in the 1970s.
