The Saifi Institute's Urban Arabic Scholarship offers motivated learners the chance to spend 5 weeks intensively studying Levantine Arabic at the Saifi Urban Gardens campus in Beirut. The institute offers classes at all levels.
The aim of this scholarship is to promote person-to-person intercultural understanding through the colloquial Arabic used in daily life. This concept is embodied in Urban Arabic, a practical linguistic system and teaching curriculum developed by Saifi Institute, that enables learners to communicate in both written and spoken Levantine Arabic. Two full scholarships cover the cost of tuition and materials, and five half-scholarships cover half the cost of tuition. The scholarship does not include travel to or from Lebanon.
