Scholarship fund for Ahmed Mohamed

*** UPDATE 9/16 at 2:48 CST: I just spoke with Ahmed's sister. Her family sends their thanks and is overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support. They're now set up as beneficiaries to this account. You can reach the family on Twitter @IStandWithAhmed ***


That is the cost of nine months tuition, living expenses, books, expenses, and fees at MIT.

That's what we should raise for Ahmed. Students like Ahmed should be praised for their feats in STEM, not arrested, interrogated, and blamed for being "less than forthcoming."

All funds are now being transferred to them directly.
