"Let us think of education as the means of developing our
greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope
and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit
for everyone and the greater strength of our nation."

Welcome to our website!

Our organization aims to encourage Muslim American youth to work to bridge the gap between Muslims and Non-Muslims. Sound financial planning is essential to getting the most out of life and we have developed a network of resources for students and young professionals. Our vision is simple: to strengthen the community by advancing post-graduate education, professional development, leadership, and public service amongst Muslim students in America. We achieve this goal by raising as little as a dollar a day - approximately $30 per month or $365 per year.

Muslim Americans are an integral part of local communities and the American society. With approximately 40% of the American Muslim population between the ages of 18 – 29, Muslim youth have the potential to shape the community in profoundly beneficial ways as they determine and begin to develop their career paths.

Although schools and numerous other organizations provide scholarships for intelligent and motivated students, it is more frequent that students are faced with an undue burden when paying for their education: expending the entirety of their parents’ savings or borrowing interest-based loans to pay their tuition and bills.

We are here to serve as an alternative.
