Cambridge Muslim College is pleased to announce the new Irshad Akhtar Memorial Scholarship, set up by the Ahmed family in Manchester in honour of their mother.

The scholarship, worth £5000 per annum, which takes effect in September 2016, will be awarded to our Diploma or BA students each year based on financial needs and merit.

Financial worries can prevent excellent students from joining us, and sponsorships like this ensure that the most talented men and women can afford to study here.

The College would like to extend our gratitude towards the family for their generosity and support towards education.

If you would like to discuss supporting a particular aspect of the College’s work, please contact our Development Officer, Davina Levy at
