The Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) Scholarship programme is an effort to develop its member countries’ human resources and those of the Muslim communities in non-member countries.

Below are the six scholarship programs offered by IsDB:

Objective

The Programmes are important parts of the developmental initiatives led by the Bank since 1983 to foster technology and knowledge sharing among its member countries and Muslim communities in non-member countries. They are designed to attract talented male and female students and build the right competencies required with a particular focus on sustainability sciences to empower communities and help them achieve their national and global development plans, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The motto is to develop the students/researchers as Good Citizens & Competent Professionals (GCCPs).

Concept

The IsDB Scholarship Programme is more than just a scholarship programme in the traditional sense of straight financial assistance to outstanding and qualified students. It is also a tool for improving the socio-economic conditions of the Member Countries and Muslim communities. It is a scholarship programme and a development programme simultaneously since the scholarship is given as an interest-free-loan (Qard Hasan) to the students and grants to their communities /countries to which they belong.

The students must fulfill the obligations detailed, under each program, after graduation and gainful employment. Besides, the students are also required to participate in the development of their communities/countries through their respective professions. The repaid fund will be used to provide scholarships to other students from the same community/country to complement the IsDB Programme and to ensure its continuity in the long run. In contrast, the students’ and graduates’ community development services will contribute to the community/country’s overall development.
