Mehta, Asha and Dashrath Memorial Scholarship

Make a Donation

Asha Mehta joined Ramapo College in 1989 and worked in the Potter Library and then as a member of the Educational Opportunity Fund program. Her advisement and student support skills were later put to work for the Nursing program, where she served as its dedicated student advisor. Countless members of the College community rallied around Asha and her family in the fall of 2021 upon the loss of Asha’s beloved husband, Dashrath. Not long after, Asha established a scholarship for a Nursing student in Dashrath’s name.

Sadly, Asha passed away in March 2022. The scholarship was renamed to memorialize both Asha and Dashrath.  Because of Asha’s generosity and fierce advocacy of the scholarship, it quickly garnered enough donations to become an endowed award and will help fund Ramapo’s nursing students in perpetuity.
