BRILLIANT STUDENT AWARD
FOR HIGHER EDUCATION – 2011
The Brilliant Student Award is an annual scholarship program offering a onetime award of USD 5,000 to two students (one boy and one girl) who have displayed a consistent record of academic excellence. It is our hope that this award will propel the students onto a path that will take them through a rigorous university education, assist them in attaining their career dreams and aspirations, and bring their talents to our communities around the world.
Only two winners will be chosen on merit from all eligible applicants, with the below requirements.
The Brilliant Student Award is open to boys and girls who have achieved outstanding results at the Advanced level (Form 5 and 6 or equivalent) and wish to go for further studies. The winners of this award will also be able to access the normal Higher Education Loan under the EB Program.
All students’ applications must be handed over to their respective Jamaat’s Education Board Representatives. Local Jamaat’s will be responsible to publicize these services, scrutinize, verify and filter all applications in order to nominate and forward Four Proposed names (two boys and two girls) to the Education Board Secretariat by 15th September 2011.
Apart from the 4 applications nominated by the Jamat, all the applications which have been received for this award should also be forwarded to the Education Board Secretariat.
Local Jamaats are specifically requested to give more importance to the award this year so that applications are received from all the local Jamaats. Jamaats Education representatives must put in extra effort to publicize and make announcements at different Community centers and functions (e.g. Madressah, khushali, wafat, etc) to draw the attention of students to seriously consider applying for the award.
