THE INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ISLAMIC THOUGHT (IIIT)
Summer Students Program 2011
June 13 – July 22, 2011
The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) is pleased to announce its Summer Students Program for 2011, which will run for six weeks between Monday, June 13 and Friday, July 22, 2011. The program is designed for senior undergraduate and graduate students who are majoring in the humanities or social science disciplines and who have a particular interest in developing their knowledge and research skills in the core areas of Islamic studies such as Qur’an, Hadith, Fiqh or Islamic Jurisprudence, Islamic History and Civilization, Contemporary Islamic Thought and Muslim World Affairs. The program also provides in-depth analysis and discussions – in seminar format – on subjects related to contemporary Islamic reform movements, Islamic banking and finance, faith-based entrepreneurship, governance and leadership, and Islam and gender issues.
During the course of the program, students would complete a total of 200 hours of direct research, instruction and administrative work at IIIT and would receive a certificate of completion from IIIT. Students interested in getting credit for the program need to discuss arrangements with their respective institutions and with the Program Director at IIIT. Top performing students may qualify for a one-year, non-resident research fellowship at IIIT that would allow them to continue doing research at IIIT, take online and other courses and present papers at academic conferences throughout the year.
Accommodation for out-of-area students will be provided by IIIT, if needed. In addition, IIIT will pay each student a scholarship of $1,200 to cover their living and other expenses and to be paid on a biweekly basis. Students should have their own health insurance coverage. IIIT does not provide health – or any other form – of insurance to students.
Those interested should fill in the online application form and submit it with their updated CV and a recent transcript no later than April 15, 2011. Official transcripts should be sent to the following address:
