The Islamic Scholarship Fund Film Grant specifically aims to facilitate and support Muslims entering the world of film, who intend to create artistic, engaging and positive stories about Muslims.

The grant will be split into two categories: narrative and documentary. Narratives will be awarded $20,000 and documentary will be awarded $10,000.
