ISF-MuBANY Scholarship

ISF offers many joint scholarships to Muslim professional groups that share its common mission and vision. ISF is honored to work with the Muslim Bar Association of New York to host the ISF-MuBANY Scholarship to enable New York based law students to achieve their goals in higher education. The program aims to seek to reciprocally reward active law students in the New York Muslim community, who have the most impact in improving the lives of their Muslim brothers and sisters.

This award is for students who play a prominent role in their community through their activism and leadership, developing visionary ideas for the future of their community. Recipients of this award must have the intention of practicing law in New York upon graduation.

ISF and MuBANY will support its scholarship recipients to fulfill a volunteer service obligation of 20 hours through relevant internship programs within one year of receiving a scholarship.
