Education is very important in Islam. The Muslim Association of Canada is organizing this program, Educational Muslim Achievement Awards Night (EMAAN), an apex event that honors and recognizes students for their achievements over the past academic year. It was introduced to Calgary in 2004 with an objective to encourage youth in our community to seek knowledge by furthering their education, to contribute positively to society and to celebrate Muslim student achievements. Various Mosques and Muslim businesses in Calgary donate funds to sponsor the awards.
EMAAN provides great scholarships to the students who show an excellent achievement record. Academic awards will be offered to all students who will graduate in 2011 from Universities, Colleges, SAIT, High Schools and Junior High Schools.
EMAAN provides many scholarships for high school graduates of up to $3000, as well as many special recognition awards
