Research and Travel Grants

We invite proposals from continuing undergraduate, co-term and graduate students for projects pertaining to the study of Islam and Muslim societies. Projects may focus on any historical period and on Muslim-majority or Muslim–minority contexts.  Projects may be pursued during the Summer Quarter or the next academic year.  Awards will be up to $6,000 and made on a competitive basis. Applicants are encouraged to apply for matching funds from other Stanford units or external agencies. 

Global Studies Internship Program

The Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies offers Stanford students an opportunity to extend classroom learning to immersive, cultural, and professional experiences through the Global Studies Internship Program. Internship positions cover a wide range of fields including human rights, media, education, public history, science and technology. Currently enrolled undergraduates and co-terms in all majors are eligible to apply.

Abbasi-Markaz Student Fellowship

The Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies and the Markaz Resource Center jointly invite applications for a one-year undergraduate fellowship. The purpose of the fellowship is to foster student-led campus conversations on themes related to Islam or Muslim societies and cultures in any historical or regional context.
