Classroom Connections Grant

Classroom Connections grants provide supplementary funding of up to $55,000 (or the equivalent) for secondary school teachers to take student groups on an immersive Arabic language and culture trip to Qatar. To enhance the travel experience and facilitate long-lasting cross-cultural connections, grantees must implement a virtual exchange program that ties in directly with their trip.

Setting up a Virtual Exchange Program

Applicants with no previous experience in facilitating virtual exchanges are encouraged to explore QFI’s virtual exchange resources on our free online educator community of practice Connect with QFI on Participate.

How to Participate

At this time, the Classroom Connections Grants are on hold until school travel programs resume pending COVID restrictions.
