‘Seeking knowledge is an obligation on every Muslim. Indeed how Allah loves those who strive in their quest for knowledge’
The Prophet (SAWA) [Al- Kafi]
The World Federation and Hiridjee Foundation are eager to empower Khoja girls by offering 2 female students the chance to study further within their chosen field. The aim is to provide female students from our community, who cannot afford the cost of education, an opportunity to pursue their higher education goals.
We understand to improve our quality of life we must focus ourselves on Higher Education. By focusing on female growth and progress through education and by creating a generation of skilled female individuals who will work together to improve and strengthen their communities.
We are excited to announce The Hiridjee Foundation Student Loan will be available for two female students in our Khoja community who are wishing to pursue higher education (undergraduate, Masters or Ph.D.).
The loan is available for a maximum of £10,000 per student per academic year, for up to three consecutive years.
Supporting Female Students Since 2008
The Hiridjee Foundation Student Loan has been helping female students from our community to pursue their studies further since 2008. There have been a wide variety of applicants from all over the world. The loan has been awarded to students of Law, Mathematics, Dental Surgery, Psychology, Optometry, Economics, Neuroscience and many more. The successful applicants have proceeded to study their preferred courses at many of the highest rated universities around the world, including Queen Mary University, Birmingham University, La Trobe University and the Cedar Crest College to name a few.
