Summer Arabic Study Grants

QFI provides grants to leading academic institutions and non-profit organizations offering intensive summer Arabic courses. Our support provides need- and merit-based scholarships to primary and secondary school students who want to continue their study of Arabic during the summer months, as well as for students who do not have access to Arabic language study in their local school district. Each summer program administers their own applications and scholarship process, which typically open for student applications in the spring for summer programs taking place between June and August.
