ICM Scholarship 2017
As'salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi
Islamic Center of Minnesota is pleased to announce the availability of
scholarships for the academic year 2017-2018. A total of 10 scholarships will be awarded by the ICM Scholarship
Committee based on criteria outlined by the donors and the Scholarship
Committee. The overall intent of the scholarship program is to encourage
pursuit of higher education, recognize community service and reward academic
excellence by members of our youth.
In 1969, a group of Muslim students who chose to make their
permanent home in Minnesota formally started the Islamic Center of Minnesota
in Dinkytown. The AbuKhadra
family generously donated the facility in Columbia Heights to be used as a Masjid. With the growth of the Muslim community and with
generous donations from community members, the ICM purchased the school
building on Gardena Ave. in Fridley in 1987. The ICM school facility in
Fridley and the ICM AbuKhadra Masjid
are the two ICM facilities in use today.
The Fridley building is used on weekdays by the Al-Amal School which operates a full time Islamic school.
The ICM operates a weekend school on Saturday and Sunday. ICM AbuKhadra Masjid holds daily
and Friday congregational prayers. The Muslim community in Minnesota is
estimated at 150,000. There are some 6 to 8 million Muslims in the United
States and 1.4 billion Muslims worldwide.
Please help ICM with your donations.
