Developing Leadership in Public Life from British Muslim Communities

Aziz Foundation Logo 2 - 500x126

The Foundation is offering two Masters scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year for exceptional students active in British Muslim communities and keen to build bridges with all parts of British society. Each student will have the commitment and intelligence to support and represent Muslim communities in wider society, as well as the credibility to bring and explain new learning experiences back to the community, to further mutual understanding between Muslims and others and contribute to the creation of a more cohesive society.

The student will also partake in the Aziz Foundation’s Leadership Support Scheme (LSS), which will assist in developing their leadership qualities and skills, knowledge of community and society dynamics, and professional networks. Leadership training, pastoral support and mentoring are all elements of this comprehensive support system, which also includes targeted internships with key organisations in the public and third sectors.

The range of courses to be supported is very wide, and includes theology, philosophy, politics, economics, history, education and development studies. The scholarship will cover tuition and living expenses for a year, up to a maximum of £25,000 in total.
