Ibn Battuta Arabic Scholarships aim to reward students for excellence and dedication to the study of the Arabic language as well as promote the study of Arabic as a foreign language. Prospective students may apply to either one of the semester programs (fall, spring) or else to one of the winter and summer programs offered at the Qalam wa Lawh center in Rabat Morocco.
Selected students will receive either a full scholarship (tuition and housing) or a partial scholarship (tuition only) for the session they have applied for. Deadlines vary by session. Please see website for more information.
