Applications

Only non-incarcerated Muslim U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply.

Applications for grants distributed between July 2017 and June 2018 are no longer available and will not be accepted.

The next application cycle is for grants to be distributed between July 2018 and June 2019. The application should become available in February 2018. The deadline is May 31, 2018. If you have received a 2016-17 or 2017-18 award, use the short Renewal form.

For those who submitted applications for 2017-18, you can follow the status of your full application or your renewal application online using your FEF ID. You receive a FEF ID by e-mail within 10 business days after the foundation has received your application. If you have applied in the past, please reuse your previous FEF ID.

Download the application and read it and then check the Frequently-Asked-Question (FAQ) documents before contacting FEF.

The mailing address is FEF, Inc., P.O. Box 212135, Augusta, GA 30917. Do not use any method which requires the recipient’s signature. Deadlines are based on postmarks, not the date FEF receives the material. So you are always safe using USPS first class mail.

In addition to information provided by the applicant, all applicants are required to submit a financial need report to FEF. Send a copy of your Financial Aid Form (FAF) or the Free Application for Federal Students Assistance (FAFSA). Information about either of these services and the deadline to apply to them may be obtained either from the applicant’s high school or the Office of Financial Aid of his/her respective institution. This is what I expect to receive if you are using FAFSA (don’t redact your information). You are welcome to attach your print-friendly document to an e-mail.

The selection of successful candidates for awards is based on a combination of need and merit. Grant selections are completed by mid-July. You will not be notified. You must check the website to see if you received an award. The maximum amount for the grant is $3,500.00. If you are selected, you must follow these instructions before any money is disbursed.

The awards are sent directly to the educational institution. The duration of the award is one academic year. Recipients are encouraged to re-apply in subsequent years.

Any questions should be mailed to the above address or e-mailed. You can leave a voice mail message at 484-694-1783.

Do not contact FEF asking if materials have arrived.

May Allah ﷻ bless your efforts and make you successful in your endeavors.
