£1000 to be Awarded to U.K. Muslim Students for Academic Excellence Third Year Running*
For the third year running, the Allamah Tabatabai Award aims to recognise students who excel academically and awards them for their achievements. By equipping them with life skills and giving them the necessary support, the award helps to nurture their academic, spiritual and personal growth in order to ensure that they are able to become successful in all aspects of their lives.
As well as the prestigious A. T. Award, a range of cash prizes and subsidised trips, each participant is also assigned a mentor that helps them with their academic journey, offering advice and guidance.
All GCSE and A-Level students with minimum requirement grades will receive a certificate, entry to mentoring scheme and a subsidised international trip (minimum requirement grades are available on http://www.ataward.co.uk). In addition to these prizes, top three students with the highest number of A* and A grades at both GCSE and A-Level will receive cash prizes totalling over £1000.
By being named after one of the greatest scholars in recent history, the award also teaches students of all ages the importance of seeking an education in order to get closer to God. By encouraging each student to seek knowledge and prosper in their areas of interest, it allows students to reflect on God’s creation and to further develop their own personal relationship with God.
It is narrated by Ayatullah Jafar Subhani that Allamah Tabatabai was completely dedicated to his studies and research. Hence, Allama serves as an inspiration for many enthusiastic students of all ages and by naming this prestigious award after him, it pushes students to learn more about the great scholar. One participant says,
“I can confidently say that my passion for seeking knowledge has been nurtured due to the support and advice I have received. The mentoring sessions allowed me to meet with inspirational individuals who can guide.”
Another participant says, “The award has allowed me to prosper in my university studies and pursue my dream of becoming a dentist. It has taught me how to use my education to help me grow spiritually”.
