Nazarly Memorial Fund
A memorial scholarship
fund has been established at Khazar University dedicated to the
memory of Zaur Nazarly. In the summer of 1998, Zaur, 21, tragically
died in a drowning accident in the Caspian. He had just completed
his Master's degree at Georgia State University in Atlanta. Zaur
had completed his undergraduate work at Khazar University (KU)
in Baku and worked in Accounting at both Ernst & Young and
Arthur Andersen Consultants.
Zaur is remembered for his activism. He was among the first Azerbaijani
youths to win scholarship aid to study abroad after the collapse
of the Soviet Union. While in the States, he helped launch the
first Azerbaijani Newslist on the Internet. He is remembered
and admired for his personal integrity, hard work, and his commitment
to building the future of Azerbaijan.
The first Zaur Nazarly Awards will be presented in May 2001 to
two MBA students at Khazar
University who have exemplary academic and community records.
The Board of Trustees administering the scholarship includes:
Prof. Jamal Musayev (Emory University, Atlanta, GA), Prof. Bijan
Fazlollahi (Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA), Sanan Ismayilov
(Arthur Andersen Co., Baku) and Hamlet Isakhanli, Khazar's President.
