Over the summer, Arabic classes at the University of Arizona were three times their normal size. In addition to learning Arabic with new web-based materials, students could participate in virtual cultural activities with people in Morocco. Such programming is possible in part because of funding from the Arizona Arabic Flagship Program, which has won a new $1.4 million grant for 2020-2024 – plus summer and year-long study abroad scholarships for each Flagship student – from the National Security Education Program. The University of Arizona is one of only six institutions in the country selected to host an Arabic Flagship Program, which helps undergraduate students from diverse majors reach superior-level fluency in Arabic by graduation.
