Dear Student,

The Islamic Development Bank (lDB), Jeddah has initiated IDB Scholarship Programme to improve the education standards of the Muslim Community in India. The Bank aims to develop the potentialities of the Muslim Students and to check the drop-out rate by awarding scholarship to the students who are meritorious and enthusiastic, but are unable to pursue higher studies due to financial difficulties.

The IDB Scholarship is an Interest Free Loan in nature and is awarded to meritorious and financially weak Muslim Students who intend to take admission in First Year of the Degree Course in the fields of Medicine i.e. MBBS, BDS, Pharmacy, Veterinary, Physiotherapy, Nursing including Bachelors Degree in Unani, Ayurvedic & Microbiology or Engineering, Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry, Food Technology, Business Administration. This scholarship is for the entire duration of the course. It will be legal and moral obligation of the students to repay these Loans after completion of their course. This will be in the greater interest of the Muslim Community to help other needy students. The students who seek and obtain admissions through payment seats are not a priority and therefore may not apply.

We appeal to the students who are able to afford educational expenses from their available resources, not to apply for this scholarship and to provide opportunity to their needy brothers/sisters who are unable to continue their studies due to financial constraints. This cooperation will be in the true spirit of the scholarship programme. In fact, it is the service of the Muslim Community.

We appreciate your interest in IDB Scholarship Programme. The prescribed application form is enclosed with this letter. Kindly read the instructions carefully before filling the application form.
