ISF offers many joint scholarships to Muslim Student/University Alumni groups that share its common mission and vision. ISF is honored to work with the UC Irvine Muslim Alumni Association to host the ISF-UCI Muslim Alumni Scholarship to enable UCI students to achieve their goals in higher education. The program aims to seek to reciprocally reward active leaders in the Muslim Ummah, 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.
ISF encourages its scholarship recipients to fulfill a volunteer service obligation through relevant internship programs within one year of receiving a scholarship.
