MEOC Educator Book Awards

Each year, the Middle East Outreach Council (MEOC) sponsors the Middle East Book Awards to recognize outstanding work that contributes to a more meaningful understanding of the region. QFI and MEOC have partnered to make these award-winning books by Arab authors or about the Middle East available to primary- and secondary-school teachers and schools.

Teachers can apply for up to three classroom sets of one of the MEOC award-winning books. If selected, teachers receive the requested books and develop a lesson plan or classroom activity related to the book s/he selected. That resource may be shared on Al-Masdar at

The grant program is open year-round and applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
