The Lutfia Rabbani Foundation's founder is recognised by the name of the Mahmoud S. Rabbani Scholarship. It is designed for either Dutch students who have been accepted into an Arab Master's or PhD programme or for Arab students who have received official acceptance into a Dutch Master's or PhD programme.

Along with encouraging interactions between Arab and European students, the purpose of this scholarship is to give students the tools they need to expand their own horizons. All fields of study are eligible for the award in accordance with the foundation's objective, and the main prerequisite is that applicants must be fluent in either the language of their programme or English.

The grant is intended for motivated students who are eager to strengthen links between these two regions.

Additionally, a mentorship programme that gives the scholarship recipient advice on a personal and professional level and gives them access to the Foundation's wide-ranging network of platforms strengthens the MSR scholarship.

Only candidates who have received a formal letter of acceptance will be given consideration for this scholarship.
