Scholarships for Muslim College Students

WHAT WE DO

We hold various workshops throughout the year at different venues to help connect professionals with students, parents, and young professionals. We also work with other organizations to establish mentorship programs formally and informally. In addition on an ad-hoc basis we try to connect students with professionals in the field.
