The Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) is currently funding the following scholarship programmes: Undergraduate, Master, PhD, and Post-doctoral research. The programmes are designed to attract talented male and female students and build the right competence required to empower communities with a special focus on “Sustainability Science” in line with the approved fields to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Undergraduate Scholarship Programme 

The Programme was launched with the objective to provide educational opportunities for the academically meritorious young students from member countries and Muslim communities in non-member countries to pursue undergraduate or first-degree study in a university and to train them in specific fields to empower communities with a special focus on “Sustainability Science” to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Presidency 5-Year Plan (P5P).

The Programme is more than just a scholarship programme in the traditional sense of straight financial assistance to qualified students. It is also a tool for the improvement of the socio-economic conditions in general. It is a scholarship programme and a development programme at the same time since the students are required to play a leading role in assisting the development of their communities and countries.

Benefits and facilities 

  • The programme covers full tuition to be paid directly to the university, monthly living allowance commensurate with the cost of living in the country of study, medical expenses at public or university hospitals.
  • For the students who are selected to study abroad, the IsDB also provides them with economy class air tickets to and from the countries of study (once at the beginning and at the end of study), installation allowance and educational equipment.
  • To help students prepare themselves for their future leading role in the development of their communities and countries, the IsDB also provides them with extra-curricular activities under a special programme called “Mentorship Programme” to ensure their academic progress and social and psychological integration in the university as well as the local community environment.

Eligibility Criteria 

The Programme is open for academically meritorious students with a strong desire to engage in social services and community development after graduation. The prospective candidate must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  •  Citizens of any of the IsDB member countries or Muslim communities in non-member countries
  • Completed senior secondary education (or the equivalent of approximately 12 years of education) with good grades in major subjects.
  •  Not in receipt of any other scholarship at the time of application and during studies
    under the IsDB scholarship programme.
  • Be medically fit and willing to undergo medical tests after selection.

Important Note: The programme does not cover expenses for the student’s family; extra-curricular courses of training; language courses and any additional travel during the study programme.
