Summer Course for Beginners in Arabic [$1000 Scholarship]
The University of Mississippi Arabic Language Flagship Program offers high school students the opportunity to gain cultural competency and language proficiency through a summer intensive course for beginners in Arabic. Students selected for this competitive program will join a small cohort of dedicated language learning, earning 6 college credit in this month-long session (July). Arabic has been identified as a critical need language valued by employers and organizations across the globe, so the UM Summer Arabic Language Institute offers students a foundation for advancement in many career pathways.
Students who attend the program will receive a $1,000 scholarship, and they can still apply for other scholarships based on merit and financial need. Review this link: https://www.outreach.olemiss.edu/pre_college/um-summer-language-institute/dates_costs.html
