IEC is proud to be a youth-centered community looking beyond the current generation to build our future leaders who will serve the Imam of our time (ATFS). Our goal has been consistent: to pursue excellence by investing in our future generations! Our strategy has been to synchronize our strengths to facilitate a solid foundation to concoct the next generation of leaders.
Community students who strive to pursue higher education are the lifeblood of the Houston community. Therefore, we have established a scholarship program to encourage academically talented students to pursue higher education. We can all make an impact by supporting our community students. Join us by supporting the IEC Scholarship to help fund our youth’s scholarships and experiential learning opportunities. Join us raising the bar and nurturing excellence for our top talent by investing in their higher education. Thank you for being so interested in the IEC Scholarship Program, and we certainly look forward to your support!
IEC counts all gifts toward the scholarship programs as gifts to IEC. We offer multiple options to give towards scholarship program.
