The Young Scholar Award for Outstanding Research on American Muslims, sponsored by the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, recognizes an emerging leader whose research focuses on American Muslims. At ISPU, we believe that research that enables American Muslims to develop their communities and research that ensures a pluralistic and equitable America are essential. Fortunately, there are young scholars currently pursuing groundbreaking work in this field of research. Not only are these scholars vital to America’s future, but they also deserve to be recognized for their contributions.
The first-place winner will receive a $1,500 prize and an expenses-paid trip to Michigan to receive their award at ISPU’s annual banquet in November. The second- and third-place winners will receive $1,000 and $500 prizes, respectively.
The deadline for applications is Friday, September 8, 2017. Applicants should complete this form, which also contains instructions for submission. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed for consideration. For more information about the Young Scholar Award, please contact Maryam Jamali at email@example.com.
