AHS Rising Academic Awards



For some, Arabic may have just initially piqued their interest; others may have dove in from the start. Whatever the case, for those who have truly fallen in love with the language, studying Arabic at the college level is the definitive next step on their journey.

In order to recognize those whose enthusiasm for Arabic truly shines, the Arabic Honor Society is introducing its Rising Academic Awards, an exclusive opportunity for AHS members.

Candidates for the Rising Academic Awards have demonstrated a strong interest in the Arabic language and Arab culture not just through their academic records, but as well their extracurricular activities, and heavy involvement in their local AHS chapters.

If selected, students receive the following:

  • Up to $10,000 to cover tuition costs for a university program focused on or heavily involving an Arabic language component.
  • Recognition on the AHS official website
