Grant for TCLP (Arabic or Chinese programs)

The latest announcements from us

American Councils for International Education is pleased to announce the opening of the Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP) grant application. TCLP helps U.S. K-12 schools to launch or expand Arabic or Chinese programs.

TCLP makes it easy for U.S. schools to grow their critical language programs by placing fully-funded teachers from Egypt, Morocco, or China to teach Arabic or Chinese as a foreign language for an academic year. By sharing their languages and cultures, the teachers bring global competencies to their host schools and communities. Host a teacher in 2017 by starting an APPLICATION today!

TCLP is funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, U.S. Department of State. Since 2006, TCLP has sponsored 212 highly trained teachers that have worked in 148 schools across 37 states, ultimately impacting over 74,000 students! TCLP teachers have also completed 14,200 of collective outreach hours to bring international experiences to local communities.

Join these globally-minded schools and increase your student's access to critical foreign languages. The application deadline for TCLP U.S. host schools is Monday, January 23, 2017 at 11:59pm EST.
