Summer Arabic Study Award Program

Through grants to leading academic institutions offering intensive summer Arabic courses, we provide need- and merit-based scholarships to primary and secondary school students in the U.S. Scholarship applications are open in the spring and the summer programs take place between June and August. Academic institutions that have or are planning to offer summer Arabic programs may submit an application in response to the annual Request for Proposals (RfP) in November.
