What is the Arabic Honor Society?

QFI enhances the experience of exemplary students studying Arabic and celebrates their achievements through the Arabic Honor Society (AHS).  We facilitate the formation of independent, student-led AHS chapters and foster student engagement in Arabic study at the secondary level, as well as supporting students who want to continue their language study into higher education and beyond. We accomplish this by:

  • Offering exclusive awards to fund participation in summer study, study abroad and higher education tuition
  • Providing grants for chapters to host events and engagement activities
  • Providing information about higher education/post-secondary institutions and opportunities for students to continue their Arabic studies
  • Sharing external scholarships and grant opportunities for Arabic students to be aware of at the secondary level and beyond
  • Organizing yearly contests and events to connect and engage students across chapters

While QFI manages chapters internationally and coordinates cross-chapter engagement, individual chapters are organized locally and operate autonomously. Chapters are encouraged to shape and adapt their activities to suit their communities, with student voices at the forefront. Teachers and AHS chapter leads are given guidance on how to organize events and drive student leadership and participation. Through these activities, AHS provides students with opportunities to engage their community in fun and meaningful ways.

AHS chapters can be founded by Arabic teachers, school administrators, or community members, though community members need the endorsement of their local Arabic program.
