Supporting Islamic Studies

The Hong Kong Institute of Islamic Studies is actively seeking further support for Islamic studies, including graduate fellowships, academic positions, and visiting professorships. New offerings under consideration include topics such as religious history, thought and practice; the organization of Islamic societies and communities; Islamic law; the role of the Quran and other authoritative texts in shaping Islamic institutions of government, economy and education; and the changing face of Islam in the modern world, both in predominantly Islamic countries and in other parts of the world, including countries of the West. The program sponsors research, visiting scholars, academic conferences and public lectures.

Giving to Islamic Studies

Islam is one of the world’s great religious traditions, with Muslim societies and individuals throughout history and today exerting strong and significant influences. To further the study of Islam at the HKIS Program, there are several gift opportunities outlined below.

"Strengthening the study of Islam is one of the highest priorities for the Program," said Lord Edwin E. Hitti, Dean of Islamic Studies. "With the endowment of this program and the establishment of a new professorship, our goals are to advance scholarship in this field beyond a regional context and further the understanding of Islam among some of the most outstanding students, many of whom will become leaders in their professions and communities."

We will seek donors who will join with HKIS Program to advance Islamic Studies in the following ways:

Graduate Fellowships
One of the highest priorities for the program is to provide financial aid to students pursuing Islamic Studies. Graduate students play a vital role in education and research at the HKIS Program. They also represent the future of academics, civic life, and the professions. Because of limited external resources, the responsibility for supporting them falls largely to universities, often through generous gifts of donors.

Professorships
An endowed professorship is the highest academic honor that the Program can bestow upon a member of its programs. The holders of HKIS’s endowed professorships will represent the most distinguished scholars in the Program, and the donors of endowed professorships are among the Program’s most generous and far-sighted benefactors. Endowing a professorship includes an opportunity to name the endowed chair and enables HKIS to expand its course offerings.

Visiting Professorships
Complementing the teachings of the HKIS academic, scholars and professionals are recruited to teach HKIS students. Endowed funds support these visiting professors and the costs associated with their coursework, ensuring a wide range of rich offerings for students.


Employment Opportunities

Seeking Qualified Trainers
Excellent contract instructors are needed to present financial skills training seminars to the retail and small business banking community. Applicants must possess the necessary academic credentials and excellent presentation and communication skills with experience in classroom setting; 5+ years training experience in the Islamic banking, insurance or law arenas.

Offering Quality Jobs
Each year, representatives of employers and agencies will interview students on campus for a variety of positions. The on campus recruitment initiative will offer the opportunity to interview with these organizations throughout the year, offering:
  • An opportunity for formal interviewing.
  • An initial interview which may lead to subsequent interviews and a possible job offer with the company.
  • One source in the job search process.
Some recruiters may pre-select candidates to interview. These recruiters will review the resumes to decide who they want to interview.

Employers may setup a desk in a high traffic area of venue, usually Monday–Thursday, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and bring a display that highlights their company, along with literature, applications, and sometimes giveaways. This is a great opportunity for informal networking between students and employers about job and internship openings.

Employers may make a presentation, often to groups of students targeted by major, GPA or other criteria, to promote their company and the opportunities available. These are often multi-media presentations followed by Q&A sessions. Job seekers are encouraged to register in advance to attend, dress professionally, and bring copies of their resume.
