Funding & Student Support

Funding for Arabic Flagship

The Arabic Flagship Program provides scholarship and other funding opportunities to offset the cost of your domestic summer study, summer study abroad, and Capstone year. While not guaranteed, scholarships can cover much of the cost of your study abroad experiences. Flagship funding applies only to these programs and cannot be applied to the cost of the Arabic Flagship throughout the academic year on IU Bloomington’s campus.

The maximum amount of support available for your study abroad experiences is $20,000. Each program has a maximum funding limit, they are:

  • $3,500 for domestic summer study
  • $7,000 for summer study abroad
  • $15,000 for your Capstone year

Other funding sources

Much of the Flagship experience takes place on the IU Bloomington campus during the regular academic year and includes both credit-bearing classes and free extracurricular activities. Although no funding is provided from the Flagship program for academic years on campus, students are encouraged to apply for the wide variety of scholarships and financial aid available through IU and other sources to help fund both their academic years and summer study.

Flagship students who are also ROTC cadets may be eligible for additional funding opportunities through partnerships between the Defense Language and National Security Education Office (DLNSEO), Army Cadet Command, and Air Force ROTC. More information about these opportunities is available here: Army ROTC and Air Force ROTC.
