Undergraduate Scholarship Programme
The Programme was launched in 1983 with the objective to provide educational opportunities for the academically meritorious young students from member countries and Muslim communities in non-member countries to pursue undergraduate or first-degree study in a university and to train them in specific fields to empower communities with a special focus on “Sustainability Science” to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their communities and countries.
The Concept of the Programme
The Programme is more than just a scholarship programme in the traditional sense of straight financial assistance to qualified students.
It is also a tool for the improvement of the socio-economic conditions of the member countries and Muslim communities in non-member countries as a whole.
It is a scholarship programme and a development programme at the same time since the students are required to play a leading role in assisting the development of their communities and countries. In other words, the IsDB aims to produce Good Citizens and Competent Professionals (GCCP) at the same time.
Benefits and Facilities
The programme covers full tuition to be paid directly to the university, monthly living and books clothing allowances commensurate with the cost of living in the country of study, health insurance, etc.
For the students who are selected to study outside of their own countries, the IsDB also provides them with economic class tickets to and from the countries of study (once at the beginning and at the end of study).
To help students prepare themselves for their future leading role in the development of their communities and countries, the IsDB also provides them with extra-curricular activities under a special programme called “Mentorship Programme” to ensure their academic progress and social and psychological integration in the university as well as the local community environment.
The Programme is open for academically meritorious students with a strong desire to engage in social services and community development after graduation. The prospective candidate must also meet the following eligibility criteria:
- Citizens of any of the IsDB member countries and Muslim communities in non-member countries
