Falcon Weekly Reminder

May 20 - May 24

UAF Mission

The mission of the Universal Academy of Florida is to teach our students the principles and practices of Islam and prepare them for academic success and good citizenship.

Hadith Of The Week   

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Fasting and the Qur’an will intercede for a person on the Day of Resurrection. Fasting will say: O Lord, I kept him from his food and desires during the day; let me intercede for him. And the Qur’an will say: I kept him from sleeping during the night; let me intercede for him. And they will be allowed to intercede.”

(Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami‘, 7329)

Income Based Scholarships

SUFS: Applications are currently being accepted from both renewal and new families. If you have not started your application, you must do so immediately as funds are limited and the process can be lengthy. www.stepupforstudents.org  877-735-7837

Additional scholarships: There is another income-based scholarship you may not be aware of, it is AAA Scholarships. You can apply for both SUFS and AAA Scholarships, but once you are approved you can only use one or the other. Having a second option allows for more funding should SUFS run out of funds. The application for AAA Scholarships will open on March 25, 2019. The process takes approximately 3 months, so do not delay your application. You can apply at: www.AAAscholarships.org For additional information you can reach them at 888-707-2465.

Once you have received your award letter, you must personally bring the letter to the business office. Do not email the letter to us. If you have already emailed the letter do not assume the letter has been received, you must come and sign the letter in.
