Grants to Schools

Since 2009, we have provided direct support to schools to establish or expand Arabic language programs in primary and secondary schools. The funding is for in-school Arabic language and culture programs, with renewal decisions made at the end of each academic year. Grants for schools are intended to create sustainable programs within 5 years. Currently, QFI’s school grants reach more than 3,200 students in the U.S., U.K., and Canada.
