MSA-NICC Scholarships

Purpose: The annual MSA scholarships will reward Muslim students of The Ohio State University for their exceptional academic success and extraordinary community engagement; moreover, these grants will help offset the rapidly increasing costs of a college education for outstanding students.

Aspects:

  • Up to four $1000 scholarships will be rewarded — two that will reward students for their tremendous performance in the classroom, and two that will reward students for their outstanding volunteer efforts to better our community.
  • The names of the scholarships are “The NICC Scholarship for Extraordinary Community Service” and “The NICC Scholarship for Outstanding Academic Achievement”
  • All undergraduate MSA members will be eligible to receive the scholarships. MSA board members that apply are not eligible to take part in decision committee.
  • Any student is only eligible to receive each scholarship once during their time as an undergraduate student; for instance, a student could not receive the scholarship for academic excellence twice, however a student could earn the grant for academic merit one year, and in the subsequent years they would still be eligible to receive the grant for community involvement.
  • Students are able to apply to both scholarships in a given year, but each student is only eligible to receive one of the two scholarships in a given year.
  • Preference will be given to those demonstrating financial need
  • Preference will be given to students receiving limited financial assistance via scholarships and financial aid.
