Thanks to a gift in 2018 from the Trust of Morvarid Guiv, the Morvarid Guiv Graduate Fellowship in Zoroastrian Studies has been established in UCLA’s Pourdavoud Center for the Study of the Iranian World. The fellowship will support graduate students studying the Zoroastrian religion, its ancient history, languages, and scriptures.
