I am a Muslim Senior in high school and intend to major in computer science. I am applying for this because my parents cannot afford to pay for my out of state tuition. I pray everyday that I will have enough money to give me a good education and make my parents proud, Inshallah!

It has always been my dream to go to college. I have two older sisters and we come from a family of academics. My father is a professor and my mother has been a teacher, academic advisor, and dean in the past. My sisters have follow in their footsteps. I would love to grow to be like them and be an intellectually enriched adult. However, we don't have all of money for me to go to a good school. This scholarship could help me attend a school that can give me the resources to go far.

Hi! I'm applying for this scholarship with intent to be criminal justice lawyer! I'm currently applying to universities as a student interested in majoring in criminal justice and pre-law. Receiving this scholarship will allow me to attend a university that is known for criminal justice. The state I'm currently residing in isn't known for criminal justice or pre-law, hence I'm applying out of state and will also have to pay out-of-state tuition. Inshallah whatever happens is for the best. I would really love to win so I can get a proper education and fight for justice.

I am currently a high school student in my junior year, but at the same time I am enrolled in college classes at the local college. The prices of the books and the tuition are a lot of money and soon out of my families affordability range. I have been told by scholars that taking loans is haram and not permissible so Inshallah this scholarship will help me avoid to ever face a situation in which I am in debt because my Allah will be with me.
