Changing Their Outcomes!
Changing Their Outcomes through Education. Etiquette & Equality
Islamic Social Services of South Jersey, is committed to investing our efforts and resources into our youth in order to build a stronger future for the Muslim community. Exceptional Muslimah Scholarship Banquet measures our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements. When our youth succeeds so do we! Many Religious denominations support a variety of scholarship programs, at both the national and regional level. Some of these programs are strictly limited to members of specific congregations, while others are open to all practicing members of that religious faith. These faith-based financial aid programs are often sponsored by Christian and Jewish colleges or private endowments. In some cases, scholarships may be funded and administered by local church foundations or faith-based civic groups. Despite being one of the most widely practiced faiths on the planet, Muslims are still a religious minority in the United States. There are very few Muslim communities who are offering scholarship programs and less than a handful, especially for Muslimah. The Islamic Social Services of South Jersey, seeks to not only promote higher education but also reward our girls for their many sacrifices to achieve spiritual, academic and social balance. Our daughters are faced with many challenges as they navigate through their high school years. It is our hope that this organization and many like it, will secure the proper funding to assist them on their next journey in life. Each year graduates will be chosen to receive The Exceptional Muslimah Scholarship for their overall achievements and dedication. We ask that you donate generously to this cause. It is only through donations that we are able to accomplish this goal.
