The goal of this scholarship is to ultimately, inshaAllah, cultivate a positive Islamic atmosphere within the Virginia Tech Muslim population. This scholarship gives one VT MSA student an opportunity to enroll in the 3-week ALIM Summer Islamic Studies Program. Our hope is that the candidate will return from the summer with an abundance of Islamic knowledge that they can then share with the rest of the MSA and Muslim community of Blacksburg. We hope that they would run for an MSA executive position but this is not at all a requirement. If they come back and influence their friends about what they learned at ALIM, their friends may be moved to practice better habits. Then if those friends influence their friends, slowly the atmosphere of the Muslim Ummah in Blacksburg, VA will transition to one fostering brotherhood and sisterhood and will be abiding even moreso with Islamic Principles.
