EDUCATION EXCELLENCE AWARDS

INTRODUCTION

The National Department of Tali’m gives Education Excellence Awards each year. These awards are only given at the occasion of Jalsa Salana Canada (except for Middle School Awards). These awards were started by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih III (rahmat Allah alayhi) in 1979. Addressing the Jalsa Salana, Huzoor (ra) said

“This day, I announce that the Jamaat should take responsibility of every child who is intelligent but not financially stable, right from the primary school stage. No intelligent child born in the Jamaat, be they born in the jungles of Africa or in the palaces of New York, in Moscow or in the vicinity of the Ka‘ba, should be wasted. Humanity should save the mind of that child. This is what Islam has taught us and this is what we should try and establish”

Huzur (ra) initiated a scheme to award medals to students who excelled in their academic examinations. For this purpose

APPLICATION PROCESS

The criteria for the Education Excellence Awards have been updated for the year 2023 and onwards with the approval of Markaz. Award applications are judged on academic merit alone. All candidates must meet the criteria given in the following section to be eligible for the awards. Applications for grade 8 awards will no longer be accepted

Awards for high school, undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels will be considered and presented at Jalsa Salana Canada. To ensure fairness, province-specific criteria have been developed and will be applied wherever applicable

AWARDS BY YEAR

Academic achievement awards are given on the second/third day of Jalsa Salana Canada. From its inception the Worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim community has always laid prime emphasis on the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) that “Acquisition of knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim man and woman”

It was revealed to the Promised Messiah (as) that the members of his community will excel others in the fields of knowledge and wisdom. To recognize those who fulfill their obligation of seeking knowledge, and are embodiment of the revelation of the Promised Messiah (as), it is Khalifa-tul Masih’s (aa) expressed desire to award such members of the community every year at Jalsa Salana. Awards are conferred for Academic Excellence on merit basis and overall average of a diploma/ degree/ certificate is taken into account
