The Impact of ISF
The Islamic Scholarship Fund empowers American Muslim leaders in policy, law, media, and film to create a world where race, religion, gender, and socioeconomic status are no longer barriers to equity and equality. ISF scholars are agents of change at the epicenters of institutions that impact public opinion and policy.
A registered U.S.-based nonprofit, ISF increases American Muslim presence in policy, law, and media positions that matter and provide a comprehensive pathway for students and professionals to impact public policy and public opinion. Since 2009 we have awarded $1.5 million to 400+ American Muslims pursuing degrees and careers in human rights, journalism, government, criminal justice, and more. Our changemakers are at the forefront of policymaking, public interest law, and advocacy efforts focused on achieving social and racial justice and creating a more equitable world for all.
