Ash-Shaheed Scholarship Fund began as a vision of Carolyn Yasmin Saleem who experienced the struggles of putting a child through college, as her daughter would be her family's first college graduate. Carolyn wanted to help more families in her community afford to send their children to college so she formed a committee of parents and grandparents of college students and college graduates. The ASSF committee called on their family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers for personal donations. ASSF began awarding scholarships within the Charlotte community in 2000. Since then, over 95 scholarships have been awarded totaling over $209,000.
Were a Non-profit 501(c)3 status organization.
