Islamic Development Bank Scholarship (IsDB)


The Islamic Development Bank sponsors and administers scholarship programs as part of its overall mission to improve the human resources of its member countries as well as those of non-member Muslim communities.

The Programs are major components of the Bank's development initiatives, which have been in place since 1983 and aim to promote technology and knowledge sharing among its member countries and Muslim populations in non-member countries. 

They are intended to attract talented male and female students and to develop the necessary competencies, with a particular focus on sustainability sciences, in order to empower communities and assist them in achieving their national and global development plans, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

The mission is to turn students/researchers into responsible citizens and skilled professionals (GCCPs).

The IsDB Scholarship Program is more than a standard scholarship program in the sense of providing direct financial help to exceptional and qualified students. 

It's also a tool for improving the Member Countries' and Muslim populations' socioeconomic conditions. 

Because the scholarship is granted as an interest-free loan (Qard Hasan) to the students and as a gift to their communities/countries, it is essentially a scholarship and a development initiative at the same time.

Following graduation and gainful employment, students must fulfill the duties outlined in each program. Additionally, students are expected to contribute to the growth of their communities/countries through their chosen professions. 

The repaid funds will be used to provide scholarships to other students from the same community/country, complementing the IsDB Program and ensuring its long-term sustainability, while the community development services provided by students and graduates will contribute to the community/overall country's development.
