Supporting British Muslims into Higher Education to better society


Our Purpose and Mission

The Aziz Foundation offers Masters scholarships to British  Muslims, enabling them, in partnership with UK universities, to progress in their career and make meaningful contributions to our society.

In terms of socio-economic and educational indicators, the British Muslim community is one of the most disadvantaged communities in the country:

  • 46% of the British Muslim population live in the 10% most deprived areas.  
  • British Muslims are less likely to be offered managerial and professional roles and, in particular, there is ongoing discrimination against British Muslim women 
  • The BME awarding gap adversely affects British Muslim students

Our contribution will help empower British Muslims to bring positive change to their communities and beyond. The Foundation’s Scholarship Programme will support those who: 

  • aspire to make a positive contribution to society – people who want to help others
  • have a vision of how they can be most impactful – change makers

In 2019 the Aziz Foundation awarded 148 scholarships, which covered a range of disciplines across over 40 UK universities and with 62% of these awarded to women.
