Islamic Development Bank (IDB) Undergraduate Scholarship Programme for Muslim in Non-Member Countries, The

This Programme provides training opportunities for Muslim students from non-IDB member countries to pursue undergraduate or first-degree courses in fields relevant to their communities and countries.



Value

*
The scholarship is given as an interest-free loan (Qard Hasan) to the students and as a grant to the Muslim communities to which they belong.
*
The students are required to repay the loan after graduation and gainful employment, in easy installments, to a Waqf (Trust) fund set up by the IDB in each non-member country benefiting from the Programme.

Conditions

Turkey was the first member country to respond positively to the IDB request. Since 1987 this positive gesture has been followed by Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, Malaysia, Morocco, Pakistan, Sudan and Tunisia.

1.
At present, the Scholarship Programme focuses on Medicine, Engineering, Agriculture and other related fields such as Dentistry, Pharmacy, Veterinary Science, Nursing, Nutrition Study, Computer Science, Forestry and Fishery.
2.
Only for the CIS countries (or former Soviet Republics) with their special needs has the IDB approved the inclusion of additional areas of study such as Administration, Management, Marketing, Finance, Banking and Accountancy.
3.
The Programme gives priority to students who have secured admission to universities in their own countries.
4.
When this is not possible, the IDB will seek the help of some of its member countries to provide places for them.
5.
As such, the Programme is also a joint effort not only involving the Muslim communities in non-member countries but also some of its member countries.

Eligibility:

1.
The IDB Scholarship Programme is intended to be for academically qualified but financially needy Muslim students with strong desire to engage in social services and community development.
2.
They must also be able to meet the following eligibility criteria:

o
Maximum age of 24 years.
o
Completion of senior secondary education (or the equivalenceof approximately 12 years of education) with good grades in major subjects (i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Biology or Mathematics).
o
Secured admission in one of the disciplines covered under the Programme at a recognized college or university in their own countries.
o
