Language Resource Centers Program Grantee List Announced

A total of 16 universities were selected to receive funding for the Language Resource Centers program at the Department of Education. The program provides grants for establishing, strengthening, and operating centers that serve as resources for improving the nation’s capacity for teaching and learning foreign languages through teacher training, research, materials development, and dissemination projects. President Biden’s latest budget request proposed $2.7 million for the program as part of International Education and Foreign Language Studies, which has seen proposed increases in funding in the House and Senate appropriations bills.
