Create Your Own Alumni Scholarship

Did you receive financial support or mentorship during your education?
Why not pay it forward?

Aia Hawari Public Policy

Through ISF's Create Your Own Scholarship program, alumni, Muslim Student Associations, and university groups can support the success of a young American Muslim scholar in the fields of: media/journalism, policy/government, law, and film. Give back to a student committed to creating a more equitable and just world for the Muslim community and all marginalized groups.

Members of your group can give directly online to your scholarship through a simple donation process, without any heavy legal and administrative paperwork.

HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?

steps_img_steps

STEP ONE: CUSTOMIZE AMOUNT

ISF scholarships are awarded to students pursuing degrees in policy/government, media/journalism, law, and film. Select the amount you'd like your scholarship to be:

Scholarships range from $3,000-$10,000.
Law scholarships begin at $5,000.

STEP TWO: NAME SCHOLARSHIP

What will you name your scholarship?

Choose to name it after your university, Muslim Student Association, or in honor of a fellow student, teacher, or mentor.
Example: The ISF Stanford Scholarship

STEP THREE: DEFINE CRITERIA

While ISF typically selects the field and region/school of our scholars based on our incoming applicant pool, if you'd prefer, you can help us define the following:

Scholarship Field: Your group can select a specific ISF-supported major for your sponsored scholarship.
Example: The ISF Stanford Law Scholarship

Scholarship Region: Donors can choose a region where you'd like to award your scholarship.
Example: The ISF Silicon Valley Scholarship

STEP FOUR: COMPLETE FORM & PAYMENT

Share our Create Your Own Alumni Scholarship Form with your alumni or university group. There, members can submit their payment/contribution themselves. Be sure to select your university from the dropdown menu.

Your group can also choose to pay in one installment, with one person completing the form and payment. However, if each member would like to receive a tax-deductible receipt, we recommend they submit their own payment in the Create Your Own Alumni Scholarship Form.
