Over £1000 to be awarded to Muslim students in the UK for academic excellence – Registration now open!

Inspired by the Allamah’s pure dedication to his studies and research, the Allamah Tabatabai Award has opened up their registration for the fourth year running. The scheme aims to recognise students who display academic excellence in their GCSEs and A-level examinations and support their development whilst rewarding them with enriching experiences.

Along with the prestigious A.T Award, winners of the award will be given the chance to attend subsidised trips to enriching destinations such as Iran and the holy cities of Qom and Mashhad. Each winner will also be assigned a mentor that will guide them through their academic journeys and support them in their respective fields. Most importantly, they will be welcomed into a loving community of like-minded students with similar aspirations to become leaders in their fields.

One winner shares the benefit of the mentoring scheme:

“My mentor gave me invaluable career advice and guidance… three years on, we have remained in contact and she continues to support my academic and personal growth”.

Along with these rewards, certificates will also be given to each student, subject to meeting the minimum grade requirements (available on www.ataward.co.uk). The top three students with the highest grades in their GCSEs and A-levels will also receive cash prizes totalling over £1000.

Another participant says, “The award has allowed me to prosper in my university studies and pursue my dream of becoming a dentist. It has taught me how to use my education to help me grow spiritually”.

By being named after one of the greatest scholars in recent history, the award also teaches students of all ages the importance of seeking an education in order to get closer to God. By encouraging each student to seek knowledge and prosper in their areas of interest, it allows students to reflect on God’s creation and to further develop their own personal relationship with God. 

It is narrated that Allamah Tabatabai was completely dedicated to his studies and research. Hence, Allama serves as an inspiration for many enthusiastic students of all ages and by naming this prestigious award after him, it pushes students to learn more about the great scholar. One participant says, “I can confidently say that my passion for seeking knowledge has been nurtured due to the support and advice I have received. The mentoring sessions allowed me to meet with inspirational individuals who can guide.”

Registration closes on the 15th of July. You can register for the award here.
