Thank you for your commitment to ISF.

Your scholarship at the Islamic Scholarship Fund empowers the next generation of American Muslim leaders to create a world where justice, equity, and equality are available to all. Learn more about your sponsored students below. We, and they, thank you for your support. Since 2009 ISF has funded American Muslim scholars studying and working in fields with the greatest impact on public opinion and public policy: law, media/journalism, film, and policy/government. Our goal: to improve negative portrayals of Muslims in the news, increase the number of Muslim policymakers, and invest in the creation of positive and engaging stories about American Muslims.
