University of Michigan Big Ihtifal

You are cordially invited to the annual University of Michigan Big Ihtifal! 

The Big Ihtifal commemorates the University of Michigan’s Arab graduates at the conclusion of each academic year. During the graduation ceremony, the cultural significance of the Arab community is recognized, along with students’ achievements.

This event allows for graduating students to celebrate their accomplishments with those who supported them during their academic journey, including friends, family and community members, and U-M faculty, staff and administrators.


Don’t miss this unique opportunity to gain exposure and broaden the reach of your work. Selected entries will be featured at a showcase where a nationally renowned panel of judges will award $25,000 in prizes to the best projects.

Project abstracts are due May 1, 2017.
