2012 Student Achievement Award

Capital Education is proud to announce our 2012 Student Achievement Award winner!  Jahandad Memarian recently traveled from Tehran, Iran to Washington, DC through Capital Education.  In just a few months this summer he built on his initial internship with the Middle East Institute's Leadership Development Office to gain a Teaching Assistant Position at Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.  Jahandad's DC activities include regular research under the direction of CEO Dr. Joel Clark, focused on US/Iranian diplomatic engagements since the Carter Administration.  

In receiving this recognition, Jahandad stated:

"While I had to overcome many challenges, I owe it to Capital Education which not only helped facilitate my U.S. visa, but also personally worked with me every step of the way to gain a great internship at the Middle East Institute.  Dr. Clark and Capital Education also provided many contacts that are helping me to pursue my goals.  They also served as an entry to so many DC speakers and events, and have been there whenever I needed them to provide letters of recommendation, and direct advice on career and graduate school choices. I highly recommend Capital Education and am eager to communicate with anyone who wants more information about how Capital Education can fulfill their goals."
