Helping develop future leaders.
Hub Foundation will award up to 15 scholarships to highly qualified applicants.
Our scholarship recipients receive $2,500, $5,000, $10,000 or $20,000.
Through our scholarship program we aim to support research on the harmony and dialogue of civilizations, rather than the clash of civilizations. We recognize the impact that academic scholarship related to Islam and Muslims has on shaping public perception and policy. Hub Foundation supports research that focuses on or includes Islam and Muslim voices or perspectives. We are also keen to support scholarship that explores local and inclusive expressions of American Islam, as well as historical and contemporary interactions between Muslims, Christians, Jews and others. Our goal is to help develop future scholars, teachers and leaders who can contribute to cross-cultural understanding and improving foreign and domestic relations.
Hub Foundation accepts scholarship applications from graduate and undergraduate students who study Islam and Muslims in the fields of Islamic Studies, Religious Studies, Comparative Religious Studies, Near or Middle Eastern Studies, Central and South Asian Studies, African Studies, History, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Political Science, Law, Public Policy and Administration, Media, or Journalism.
