Muslim Graduate Students Invited to Apply for Islamic Society of North America Fellowship Program in Nonprofit Management

The HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Society of North America Fellowship Program is designed to prepare Muslim graduate students to become effective and knowledgeable leaders of nonprofit organizations in North America.

Fellows will be given the opportunity to study nonprofit management, fundraising, capacity development, and other relevant subjects. These courses will be offered at the Indiana University Center on Philanthropy or other similar institutions of higher education and centers of philanthropic studies.

In addition to fulfilling university academic requirements, fellows will serve as interns in the summer or on a part-time basis during the school year with the Islamic Society of North America or another nonprofit organization approved by ISNA. During the internship, fellows will receive relevant hands-on experience that they can carry to any nonprofit institution.

An important component of the HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal ISNA Fellowship Program will be a service-based project in addition to the academic and institutional training that fellows will receive. This project will be related to work performed during the internship.

The program will provide each of the ten participating fellows with a scholarship award of up to $11,000 per year for tuition and a stipend of $1,000 per month for nine months.

Muslim graduate students pursuing a degree in nonprofit management, philanthropy, or other related fields are eligible for the fellowship. Applicants must have graduated from a college or university (with a B.A./B.S. or graduate degree) within a year of the application deadline, or be currently enrolled as a graduate student; and must have U.S. citizenship or legal permanent residency.
