Cardiff University Jameel MA Scholarships

The Centre for the Study of Islam in the UK (Islam-UK Centre) at Cardiff University is pleased to invite applications for the Cardiff University Jameel Scholarships.

Founded in 2005, the Islam-UK Centre works towards the promotion of better understanding of Islam and the life of Muslims in Britain, through high quality teaching and research. Its activities address issues which are central to the situation of Muslims in contemporary Britain. The Centre provides unique training and research opportunities for those seeking onward employment in a range of academic and non-academic careers.

With the help of a very generous gift to the University, the Jameel Scholarships have been established to enable the very best students to come to Cardiff University – those who have the intellect and determination to apply their knowledge for the benefit of Muslim communities in the UK, and to promote better understanding of Islam in wider society.

The Jameel scholarship has enhanced my studies an incredible amount. I found the application process to be a rewarding and enjoyable challenge as it made me reflect over all my years of education and volunteering in terms of what I have learnt, gained and stood for. The funding has supported my studies greatly given that in my Undergraduate days I felt held back from investing in books/conferences/resources due to costs. Now I know I can truly explore avenues of learning that I couldn’t before – it should greatly help with the depth and substance of my dissertation.

How to apply

After you have completed your application for the MA In Islam in Contemporary Britain you can then apply online for the Cardiff University Jameel MA Scholarships. The 2019 application deadline for this scholarship has now passed. Please revisit this page from March 2020 if you would like to apply for the scholarship for the 2020/21 academic year.

Applying was relatively straightforward and writing about my proposed research in that early stage proved really useful once I started the course as I already had my initial ideas. After joining the centre, I have been supported by both staff and other students, and it is a nice environment to study in.
