CASA Program Updates

CASA 2021-2022 will be offered in Amman, Jordan only (September – May). ​
Travel has been approved starting in September to Amman, Jordan. As usual, we are continually monitoring the situation closely due to the tentative situation with COVID and potential political issues globally.  

CASA 2022-2023 Call for Applications
We currently plan to proceed with CASA’s usual Application cycle in the coming ​Fall for the 2022-2023 program. If you are interested in applying, please review the Applicants section for further information and check back this fall for updates.

PLEASE NOTE:
We are saddened by the challenges to study abroad that the pandemic has caused, but ​the CASA fellows' health and safety remain our priority. The CASA funding from the U.S. Department of Education ​allows the program to operate in Jordan only and does not allow travel to Egypt at the moment. It is important for you to know that CASA and ​its home, the University of Arizona, have not approved and do not endorse the program at the American University in Cairo (AUC) which currently refers to itself as CASA or as CASA@AUC. Should you pursue AUC’s program, you will be doing so at your own risk, without the endorsement or support of CASA or the University of Arizona. 

 

“There exists no other program anywhere in the world that provides this breadth and depth of Arabic training at these levels. This level of training gives the US its academic and professional edge over the rest of the world.”
