CASA Program Updates

CASA 2021-2022 is being offered in Amman, Jordan only (September – May). ​
The program is being conducted in-person with masks this fall. As usual, we are continually monitoring the safety and security due to the tentative situation with COVID and any potential political issues globally.  

CASA 2022-2023 Call for Applications
We have posted the Applications and accompanying instructions for the 2022-2023 program. If you are interested in applying, please visit and review the Applicants section for further information.

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.”
