  1. I am interested in scholarship, but it's difficult do me to get it, how can I get the scholarship? i was graduated in Islamic education( s1)and i wanna s2 in Islamic education too, help me please.

    1. Hello Harwanto,

      We are sorry to tell you, but the deadline for the scholarship is way over. We are afraid we cannot really help you with getting the scholarship – you are the one who is in charge of it. The only way is to keep track of changes here: http://qfis.edu.qa/output/page122.asp or other possible ways that we will probably publish here, so check them in the future.

      Good luck so far,
