Money paid into this account is reserved for families who need assistance paying future school tuition. To apply for financial aid please go to the accounting office or see below for online application.

To donate toward financial aid:

Mail a donation to the NUI accounting office at

4137 Route1 South
Monmouth Junction, NJ 08852

We strongly encourage those who will not need assistance to participate in the other half of the Helping Hands Program. Contribute as much as possible, and encourage your family and friends to make a tax deductible donation towards financial aid.

If you would like to donate to help other families receive needs based financial aid, then please send a check today, with Financial Aid in the memo line, to the NUI accounting office.

In this way, members of our community can directly lend a Helping Hand to other children from our community, and know that these tax deductible donations are responsible for making the next generation of Muslim leaders in America.

To Apply for Financial Aid:

Tuition Assistance Program

Limited grants are available for qualifying families with students in Pre-K through 12th grade, and are awarded based on need as evaluated by the process described below.

The initial review for a grant will be conducted through an independent third party company that evaluates financial aid applications for private schools across the country. This will allow our families to benefit from a confidential and unbiased process for evaluating a family’s ability to cover the cost of tuition.

Based on the recommendations provided through the independent review process, qualified applicants will be ranked and available grants will be provided to offset a limited portion of the tuition. It should be noted that the actual grant amount may vary from applicant to applicant based on the need and available grant amount, and that NUI School does not guarantee awarding a grant to all applicants.

If you wish to be considered for a tuition assistance grant, you must complete the SSS online application at this time (see below). Your application must be submitted by Friday, March 22, 2013.

Helping Hands Financial Aid Program

Financial aid is available on a limited basis for Noor-Ul-Iman families who have been impacted by a crisis or qualify as a low income household.

Families awarded aid will be notified approximately 6 weeks after the deadline.

While we strive to see that every deserving applicant receives assistance, we set out first priority for the neediest families. We then set our second priority for families experiencing hardship.
