Qatar Scholarship Application

Due to an unexpected and last-minute change in the application procedure for the Arabic for Non-Native Speakers (ANNS) Program at Qatar University (QU), US students are now required to apply directly to the Program. The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) will no longer vet and select students for the ANNS Program as of the current 2016-2017 academic year.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but these changes are beyond the control of CCAS.

As of January 3, 2016, students interested in the ANNS Program should apply here.  

QU's application window is open from January 10 to March 10, 2016.  

All information concerning admission to the ANNS Program must be directed to QU's International Students Office:

For applicants who have already submitted application materials to CCAS:
Applicants who have already submitted their materials to CCAS must submit a new application through QU starting January 10th.  The list of required application materials can be found here on QU's website. Applicants need not submit additional materials to CCAS.  

For applicants for whom letters of recommendation have already been submitted:
CCAS will forward to QU all letters of recommendation that have already been submitted as part of the application file. Any additional letters of recommendation are to be sent to: Please note that any forwarded materials will be submitted in addition to, and not in lieu of, the QU application.
