The Basil Mahdi Al-Rahim Charity Foundation Scholarship Fund honors the memory of late Basil Al-Rahim, chief executive officer of private equity group MerchantBridge and member of the board of directors of AsiaCell, who passed away in a plane crash in Sulaimani in 2011.  

The Charity Foundation has pledged $87,010 to cover the education of three students at AUIS over a period of four years starting March 2015.
