Request Overview:

In 2019, the Islamic Scholarship Fund seeks general support as it plans a dynamic gathering to nurture its powerful community of alumni leaders committed to advancing American Muslim inclusion on many fronts. With more than 300 alumni with majors and careers in law, media, and policy, ISF will make space for alumni to network with each other and professional executives, to develop partnerships and advance social justice work across disciplines. Prominent alumni with leadership in one of the tracks will guide the content for each and will solicit the involvement of outside facilitators/presenters. The gathering will also include a mix of roundtables and creative strategy sessions to tackle issues impacting Muslim communities.
