Muslim Scholarships

Islam is a large and rapidly growing faith globally. Despite Islam’s status as one of the most widely practiced faiths on the planet, in the United States, Muslims are still a religious minority. Luckily, as members of a religious minority, Muslim students are eligible for a number of scholarship opportunities and other sources of financial aid designed to foster diversity on college campuses.

Additionally, the Islamic community wants well-educated members, and thus provides Muslim scholarships to help students of this faith pay for school. Scholarship awards are available for a variety of Muslim students based not only on faith, but also on academic performance and financial need. For a complete list of Muslim scholarships for which you may qualify, as well as other sources of scholarship money not affiliated with religion, conduct a free college scholarship search on Scholarships.com and take the first step towards funding your education.
