The Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center (SQCC) Summer Arabic Language and Media (SALAM) program is a fully-funded intensive Arabic language scholarship program.  SALAM will be held at the Sultan Qaboos College for Teaching Arabic Language to Non-native Speakers in Manah, Oman. This intensive Arabic language program will allow students to gain a deeper knowledge of Arabic, while becoming familiar with Omani history and culture. Students will study Modern Standard Arabic and media Arabic. In addition to classroom language instruction, students will have access to Omani peer language partners, organized weekend trips around Oman, extracurricular activities, and weekly lectures. The program runs from June – August. SQCC will cover international travel to and from Washington, D.C. and Muscat, Oman, program language classes, room, board, SALAM-sponsored travel for weekend excursions, and all entrance fees for program activities. Students will be required to purchase travel insurance, and international health and medical evacuation insurance. Applicants must be enrolled in a degree seeking program (undergraduate, MA or PhD) in spring prior to the program and have completed the equivalent of 4 semesters of Arabic coursework by end of spring prior to the program.
