The Sheikh Family Scholarship

We are pleased to announce The Sheikh Family Scholarship is now formally open to exceptional students on the Postgraduate Award in Islamic Education.

Successful candidates will be first-generation university students and who demonstrate the scholarship will make the most difference. For 2018, the invitation for applicants extends only to students who successfully complete the Postgraduate Award in Islamic Education and have been accepted onto the MA Religions, Society & Education (Islamic Education).
