The Bank funds and implements its Scholarship Programmes as part of its overall effort to develop the Human Capital of its member countries and those of the Muslim communities in non-member countries aiming at investing in Human Capital for Promoting the Development of Knowledge-based Economy.
The IsDB is currently funding the following scholarship programmes: Undergraduate, Master, PhD, and Post-doctoral research. The Programmes are an important tool in the development initiatives led by the IsDB since 1983 to foster technology and knowledge sharing among member countries and Muslim communities in non-member countries.
The programmes are designed to attract talented male and female students and build the right competence required to empower communities with a special focus on “Sustainability Science” in line with the approved fields to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
For over (3) three decades, the Bank has helped to provide scholarship opportunities to 15,611 students and formed a pool of 13,253 well-trained development professionals and researchers transforming their countries and positively impacting future generations.
