The Islamic Scholarship Fund (ISF) is a non-profit organization founded in 2009.

Since its establishment, its mission and the main goal are to support the under-representation of American Muslims in the fields that influence public opinion and make public policy and they are achieving this through various scholarship programs.

They noticed that fostering education and improving Muslim representation in all aspects of life including media and politics can lead to full integration and a better understanding of Islam and Muslims and they are doing their best to reach it.

Full Description

In April and May, the Selection Committee will review the applications while in June the finalists will have to complete phone interviews.

The final decision will be made in July and scholarships will be awarded shortly after it.
