Student Affairs Scholarships

The Division of Student Affairs realizes there can be more a meaningful college experience through financial scholarships. The hope is to assist a student who is currently working to have more time to study and be in the classroom. In pursuit of this goal, Student Affairs makes available scholarships to students seeking to enrich their academic enrichment, and fulfill their dreams of a bachelor’s degree.

Noor Inayat Khan Interfaith Community Service Scholarship

About Noor Inayat Khan:

Noor Inayat Khan was a young Muslim heroine who joined the British network of spies sending coded messages between England and the French Resistance. The daughter of a Sufi Master from India, and an American mother, Noor grew up in a Sufi interfaith center in Paris, where she was living when the Nazi invasion occurred. Resisting numerous opportunities to escape to safety, Noor’s selfless decision to aid the resistance (and save countless lives) ultimately cost her own.

The UNF Interfaith Center is proud to present the Noor Inayat Khan Interfaith Community Service Award each spring to two outstanding students. Each winner receives a tuition scholarship in the amount of $500 and a commemorative award.
This scholarship was made possible by generous contributions from members of the Jacksonville community and is intended to recognize the significant voluntary interfaith community service provided by student leaders through the UNF Interfaith Center. For purposes of this scholarship, such “service” includes activities like:

 

    • Leadership involving volunteering on campus or in the Jacksonville community for the common good;

    • Leadership of programs or events designed to raise awareness around a pressing social issue; and/or

    • Leadership in planning community events designed to bring people together across differences of religious, spiritual, and other values-based worldviews 

    (Example: student planning and implementing UNF’s screening of Enemy of the Reich: The Noor Inayat Khan Story.)

Criteria

  • Significant voluntary interfaith community leadership through the UNF Interfaith Center or Better Together at UNF.
  • A full-time student in good standing
  • A minimum 2.75 G.P.A.
