The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) is pleased to announce its Summer Students Program for 2012, which will run for five and a half weeks between Monday, June 11 and Wednesday, July 18, 2012. 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 and faith-based entrepreneurship.
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. Shenandoah University has agreed to offer four credit hours to students who are interested. Those 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 $1,000 to cover their living and other expenses, to be paid in two installments. 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 C.V. and a recent transcript no later than April 30, 2012. Official transcripts should be sent to the following address:
