  • Scholarship Description
  • The Islamic Scholarship Fund (ISF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity founded in 2009 whose mission is to address the under-representation of American Muslims in the fields and occupations that influence public opinion and make public policy. Our belief is that fostering education and improving Muslim representation in all walks of life including media and politics will lead to full integration and better understanding of Islam and Muslims.

    ISF National Scholarships are open to all students who meet the following criteria:
    -Muslim or active member of the Muslim community
    -Enrollment at an accredited university in the U.S. by August
    -Majoring in an ISF supported major
    -U.S. citizen or permanent resident
    -Current undergraduate (sophomore/junior/senior) or graduate student (including PhD students)

    To stay focused on our mission, we do not support health, economics, environment, agriculture, food, psychology, engineering, education, or business related majors. For example, we don't support Public Policy with a focus on Health, Law, or Business.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
