The Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center (SQCC) accepts applications for the Summer Arabic Language and Media (SALAM) program in the Sultanate of Oman. SALAM is a fully-funded intensive Arabic language scholarship program. SALAM 2023 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.

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.
