Biography of Aziz Jamaluddin

The Aziz Jamaluddin ISNA Scholarship Program was established because of the strong belief in the need of Muslim students pursuing journalism. Mr. Jamaluddin noted the long history of biased media reporting and felt that there has been a lack of voices representative of Islam inside mainstream media. His continuing dedication and focus on helping the needy and promoting education and training of future leaders, serves as the inspiration for this scholarship.  The primary goal is to have a generation of educated Muslims to speak out and communicate the true meaning of Islam in all types of media.  This program is administered by ISNA and is funded by the Jamaluddin family.
