Islamic Development Bank

The purpose of the Islamic Development Bank is to foster the economic development and social progress of its member countries and Muslim communities, individually as well as jointly, in accordance with the principles of Shari'ah or Islamic Law.

The Islamic Development Bank works with the Cambridge Trust to offer the IDB Cambridge International Scholarship, which is available to PhD applicants in the fields of Science and Technology.  This award forms part of the IDB Merit Scholarship Programme for High Technology.

In 2014 the IDB was invited to join the University of Cambridge's Vice-Chancellor's Circle, in recognition of its generous support of postgraduate students in Cambridge.
