UK Grants

Arabic Language & Culture Programs for Schools

We partner with the British Council to offer grants to schools to introduce or expand provision for Arabic and work toward offering Arabic on the curriculum. We want Arabic to be a realistic choice for UK schools and a viable option for any student of any background to explore. All UK state schools are eligible to apply.

Arabic Language and Culture Outreach Grants

The Arabic Language and Culture Grants are support workshops, performances, exhibitions, and events that present the richness and diversity of the cultures of the Arab World to UK audiences. This may include introducing aspects of Arab culture such as dance, music, storytelling, calligraphy, cuisine, and other forms of expression to schools and wider communities.

Arabic Teacher Councils

To support communities of practice and to make teachers feel less isolated (most schools and even areas have just one Arabic teacher), QFI provides funding for Arabic Teacher Councils in the regions where we work. We currently support the North West Teachers Council, hosted by Bolton Muslim Girls School, the West Yorkshire Teachers Council, hosted by Leeds University, and the Arabic Teachers Council in London and Southern England, hosted by Goldsmiths, University of London. We invite proposals from individuals and institutions in other regions in the UK to establish and run councils to meet, network, share resources, and ideas, and reach out to the wider community as advocates for the Arabic language and Arab culture.
