What is the process of using zakah in an Islamic institute to sponsor a student?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
What is the process of using zakah in an Islamic institute to sponsor a student? If the zakah has to be assigned to that student and then he discontinued his studies what will be done now to that zakah? Please explain in detail and if there is a better procedure to adopt please mention.

Answer

(Fatwa: 369/262/D=1433)

Zakah shall be paid by giving it to a poor student and making him its owner, whether it is given in form of scholarship, cooked food, clothes; quilt etc provided it is given in the possession of the person whom it is given. If it is given each moth then madrasa shall not bear any loss. Yet, if the scholarship was given and the student left then also the zakah was paid. However, the food etc which the student used is debt on him, which may be demanded from him. Or you may adopt any other safe method of giving scholarship.
