IKSF awards Canadian high school graduates scholarships for a number of sociology disciplines. Students applying for IKSF scholarships need to demonstrate leadership qualities and that they are interested in pursuing careers such as Media and Journalism, Public Policy, Law and Related fields.
IKSF recognizes Ibn Khaldoun as the founder of the discipline of sociology.
Muḥammad ibn Khaldūn al-Ḥaḍramī; (27 May 1332 – 17 March 1406) was a leading Arab Muslim historiographer and historian. He is widely considered as a forerunner of the modern disciplines of historiography, sociology, economics, and demography.
He is best known for his book, the Muqaddimah or Prolegomena (“Introduction”). The book influenced 17th-century Ottoman historians like Kâtip Çelebi, Ahmed Cevdet Pasha and Mustafa Naima, who used its theories to analyze the growth and decline of the Ottoman Empire. 19th-century European scholars acknowledged the significance of the book and considered Ibn Khaldoun to be one of the greatest philosophers of the Middle Ages.
We are excited to announce that we are accepting applications for Fall 2020. Our website showcases various programs that we support. IKSFoundation was established in 2019 for the benefit of Canadian Muslim Community and is recognized globally. Throughout our great history, we have offered access to a wide range of scholarship opportunities for the benefits of our youth.
We encourage our students to apply in their fields of interest and its always best to get career counselling to choose field aligned with your passion. Throughout any coursework and study, you learn various topics that you may have never learnt before, which expands your chances to discover a new interest, passion or hobby.
There is an old saying that “Your network is your net worth.” During studies, students get the opportunity to learn and connect with people from around the world and different walks of life where they get to know about the outside world and make connections that may last a lifetime. Some of connections even pay you off in starting off your job career in the market.
Studies give a student the benefit of self development and learning life skills too. Any college or university education is beyond academic benefits as it gives chance to students to develop attitude and skills that encourages them to self groom, better manage time, budgeting and team working skills.
