Muslim Scholarships

Islam is growing rapidly across the globe. Despite being one of the most widely practiced faiths on the planet, Muslims are still a religious minority in the United States. However, there are scholarship opportunities available to Muslim students. The Islamic community wants their members to be well-educated and some Muslim organizations provide scholarships to Muslim students who need help paying for school. Also, many college campuses offer more financial aid to minority students to foster campus diversity.
