ISF is leading the way in placing American Muslims in positions that matter in the fields of policy/government, law, film, and media/journalism. Through our comprehensive Cycle of Support, we offer a unique incubator model that provides funding, mentorship, and career counseling, as well as real-world, professional experience through internships and fellowships in our four fields.

Our Mission

ISF increases American Muslim representation in media and government to improve public policy and public opinion. We believe that the interests of our community can only be protected if we are part of the policy-making process. ISF scholars and alumni across the country and world are ensuring our voices are heard.
