If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it.

Professional Development

Below are two professional development programs. You may also find the Resources pages of our website useful. Please note that although our scholarship programs are limited to Muslim students, our Professional Development tools may be used by anyone, including Non-Muslims. They are encouraged to participate as Mentors and be a part of our other professional development programs.

Mentorship Program

D.A.D.'s Mentorship Program allows Muslim students interested in various fields of study to connect with both Muslim and non-Muslim professionals in their respective careers to network, learn from their experiences, and most importantly, build one-on-one relationships to develop contacts in the field, so their work is made easier by those that came before them. The program offers many benefits and does not take a lot of time either. Mentors and Mentees are matched based on academic, professional, and personal interest given by them in the application forms below.  

Mentors and Mentees set their own availability. D.A.D. administers the collection and matching of participants so YOU get to launch a promising career!

Applications for Mentees and Mentors can mailed to D.A.D. at our address below:

D.A.D. Professional Development Listserv

D.A.D.'s Professional Development Listserv brings together Muslim students and professionals from across the country to exchange ideas, post internships and jobs, and discuss issues relevant to careers and professional development.

You may request to join the Listserv by emailing us at pd@muslimscholarship.org


Future programs

We are currently developing additional programs and resources to expand the number of services available to you. These include expanding our Professional Development program to create a Career Center which will allow students to drop off resumes for posted jobs, attend networking conferences, and sign-up for mock interviews. We are also attempting to create an interest-free loan program and partner with organizations to provide leadership workshops.

To suggest an idea or for feedback and/or questions on our future programs, feel free to contact us.
