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, Jewish Student Union, Muslim Student Association, and/or Better Together @ UNF.
Candidate applications are screened by a committee comprised of the UNF Interfaith Center staff in consultation with two UNF faculty or staff members and/or individuals active in the Jacksonville interfaith community.

Congratulations to our 2016 Noor Inayat Khan Interfaith Community Service Scholarship recipients Lauren Mickler (left) and Josef Kim (right)!
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.
