NATIONAL ― Community Wide Shuraa Conference (CWSC) and the Words Make People (WMP) National Scholarship Committee are honored to announce the 2015 Words Make People Leadership & Community Service Scholarship Award.
Formerly under the administrative program management of FAMACO Publishers, the Scholarship was placed under the permanent program management of CWSC February 1, 2015 in fulfillment of CWSC’s commitment to have a scholarship component as part of its community service programs.
CWSC Executive Director, Thomas Abdul-Salaam states, “The WMP Scholarship established in honor of Imam W. Deen Mohammed (ra) has already accomplished a pretty impressive record of service and operations and is a natural fit with CWSC’s mission, vision, and guiding principle. The WMP allows us to accelerate our scholarship initiative. It’s especially rewarding to fulfill another milestone of CWSC’s vision as President Obama unveils an initiative to fund two years of community college free. Insha-Allah, the President’s proposal will be enacted because education is at the core of our future.”
The Scholarship’s new home at CWSC helps secure the future of the program for the long-term including increased funding through cooperative estate planning. CWSC can also generate greater awareness among students, teachers and administrators of the WMP opportunity via CWSC’s national nonprofit platform that includes an enhanced electronic footprint and its AM360 broadcasting network.
“The WMP Scholarship helps us show our students that we care too about their future and need their voice and intellect at the table of shuraa baynahum for the community’s future. Encouraging our students and making a contribution to higher education through college funding are great blessings for all of us. Dr. Zakiyyah Muhammad and our entire Scholarship Committee along with all of CWSC are very excited about the future and our capability to help more students attend college.” says, Abdul-Salaam.
The WMP Scholarship is established in honor of American religious scholar, community and business leader and humanitarian, the late Honorable Imam Dr. W. Deen Mohammed. Imam Mohammed inherited the struggle for dignity and economic justice through the African American saga and Islamic influence woven into the history of American Blacks both before and after slavery. He led millions to true Islam, dispelling false notions of race and religion to make his Community a world leader for the proper understanding and practice of Al-Islam.
