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. The scholarship is available from the generous donation from COSARAF Foundation https://www.cosaraf.org/ to enable students who are facing financial hardship to continue on to the MA Religions, Society & Education (Islamic Education) programme at Centre for Education Studies. 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).
