Grants to Schools

Since 2009, QFI has provided direct support to schools who want to establish or expand Arabic language programs at the primary and secondary school level. Funding is available to public or public charter schools in the United States, and state-funded schools in the U.K. and Germany and can provide support for teacher salary or classroom curriculum material and development. Grants for schools are intended to create sustainable programs within five years. Currently, QFI’s school grants reach more than 3,200 students in the U.S., U.K., and Canada.
