Our long term goal for the Muhammad Ali fund is to provide 20 full- tuition scholarships to a select group of deserving and highly qualiﬁed entering graduate students enrolled on a full-time basis in Bayan's 48-unit Master's degree program in Islamic Education or Islamic Studies & Leadership. This endeavor is designed to educate, train and credential the next generation of religious and community leaders in order to help them bring their communities to a position of excellence.
The people's Champion once said, "My wealth is in my knowledge of self, love, and spirituality." At Bayan Claremont, our educational vision for "a world that understands Islamic values in a modern context" involves the cultivation of rising leaders who are ﬁrmly in touch with their own faith, identity, and community, echoing Muhammad Ali's groundedness and dedication to the betterment of others.
