Meet MALA's 2018 Scholarship Recipients!

By Jean Schindler | MALA Chief of Staff

2018 ‘Muslim American Journeys’ Scholarship Contest Recipients

It is with great pride and excitement that we announce the recipients of our 2018 ‘Muslim American Journeys’ Scholarship Contest:

1). Laurel
2). Zaynab
3). Bahram
4). Asad
5). Neamat
6). Fathima
7). Ayat
8). Sofia

These individuals were chosen based on the merit of their thoughtfully crafted personal essays, each of which tells a unique and compelling story. We extend our congratulations to this year’s scholarship recipients, and our deep appreciation to all of those who sent in personal essays. Together, these stories are a beautiful illustration of the tenacity, struggle, and triumph so deeply etched into the social fabric of America.

The “Muslim American Journeys Scholarship Contest.” was created to help nurture a new generation of ambitious and diverse young leaders. MALA believes that knowledge is power, and recognizes that, in order to ensure the success of these rising leaders, higher education must be as accessible as possible. By awarding scholarships (ranging from $250 to $1,000) this program reflects MALA’s commitment to higher education, and demonstrates our faith in a new generation of leadership. Thank you to our GlobalGiving family for your warm support and participation - you make this possible!
