National scholarships available
Scholarship Cycle Opens with 5 College Scholarships
Encouraging academic excellence, civic engagement and historic preservation
Scholarships are another intelligentsia component at CWSC and focuses on the fact that while we’re working on any number of issues at any point in time, we must devote resources simultaneously to secure our next generation intelligentsia leaders. Each February during African American History Month through June, our scholarship cycle opens to qualified matriculating college-bound high school and current college students.
In addition to providing cash funds to pay for higher education, our scholarships feature a historical and cultural preservation component that offers families of pioneers the ability to open nationally supported, tax deductible college scholarships in honor of a pioneer.
Through MAP scholarships, CWSC is a national scholarship administrator helping families establish lasting legacies for those who helped make a home for Al-Islam and/or religious freedom and civil rights in America. In essence, the next generation will learn about our pioneers’ contributions and be inspired to not only get an education, but to also be civically engaged in helping to remake the world.
Because of the generosity of families in the MAP program and donor support, we now offer five (5) scholarships including the Payton Next Generation Scholarship; Taheerah R. Muhammad Educational Excellence Scholarship; Twin Servant of Peace Excellence in Broadcasting & Communication Scholarship; Words Make People Literary Excellence & Scholarship Award honoring Imam W. Deen Mohammed; and the Yahya K. Muhammad Business & Community Leadership Award.
CWSC Scholarships helps us show our students we care 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 us all.
To apply, contribute to a scholarship or start a scholarship in the name of your loved one, either current or posthumously; visit Scholarships right here at CWSC…their future is our future.

First National Radio-Telethon Raises $10,000
CWSC and AM360 wish to thank believers across the country for their generosity in supporting the historic first CWSC-AM360 Radio Telethon.
In an unprecedented campaign, we coordinated the event on the airwaves of our flagship broadcasting network, American Muslim 360, garnering support from around the country to raise $10,000 to help us do for self and secure our group intellect’s voice in America and the world.
Before his passing, our Brother Imam Thomas Abdul Salaam after years of struggle saw AM360 become the #1 Islamic blogtalk radio station in America, honored as a major media influencer, and is currently celebrating 500,000+ listens and counting. He also saw the strength of a collective national intellect working to forge the infrastructure of the CWSC and he followed the logic of Imam Mohammed.
Thomas was blessed to make powerful connections in that he integrated the vision of a national working intelligentsia with a powerful broadcasting medium. He brought together CWSC and AM360 to create the shared freedom space for ideas coming from our group intellect; and he paired that freedom with the apparatus or infrastructure to connect believers anywhere in the country or even the world, to work for the realization of those ideas.
Now we’ve gone to another level of excellence, including integrating telethon fundraising to strengthen our intelligentsia operations with the maximum fundraising efficiency.
Thank you all our contributors and supporters including our listenership, hosts and all volunteers, our imams, masajid and other leaders and institutions across the nation, and all our faith communities and brethren who supported the Telethon…we love you and look forward to serving you in 2016.
