A panel of judges has recently convened to decide on the shortlist, basing its decisions on the evidence and testimonies submitted by nominated institutions.

The Panel would like to congratulate the shortlisted institutions. Moreover, the Foundation would like to thank the external judges on the panel for their insights and support. These were Nahid Roshanali, Universities Coordinator at Islamophobia Awareness Month, and Ayesha Ahmed, Aziz mentor and Public Affairs professional.
The winner and runner up is due to be announced in September.
