Archived: Mishkáh Scholarship Fund – Sponsor Our Youth: Sponsor 10 Students for a Life-Changing Program, make Education Accessible to Youth of All Backgrounds!

iCrowdNewswire - Jul 16, 2015

Mishkáh Scholarship Fund – Sponsor Our Youth

Let’s Make Education Accessible to Everyone!

Medina was an accessible community. There was no price tag on sitting with the Prophet ﷺ and learning. If we are to embody the example of the Prophet ﷺ in our times, we must make our educational programs accessible to young Muslims from all backgrounds. With our team of great Muslim scholars, artists, entrepreneurs, and youth leaders, we have built the Mishkáh National Summer Revival, a program that brings together dynamic youth from around the country to spend time in nature, to have one-on-one mentorship with great Muslim scholars, artists, & thinkers, and to explore the history and culture of two of America’s greatest cities: Boston and New York City. We have accepted a number of amazing youth from around the country, ranging from high schoolers from the inner-city of Philadelphia to an undergraduate student at Princeton University. However, many of them need financial aid to attend what will insha’Allah be a life-changing program. Help us make that a reality by sponsoring 10 attendees!

Our World Class Team of Mentors

We have gathered an amazing team of Muslim scholars, artists, entrepreneurs, and thinkers that have been working with us to build an amazing program. We have also been working with a team of youth coordinators from around the country who will be counselors at the program. All of the mentors below will be resident mentors at the program, spending days with the students throughout the program and giving students one-on-one mentorship as they explore what it means to embody the Prophet’s ﷺ message in the context of America.
