The Institute of International Education (IIE), acting as the administrative agent of the National Security Education Program (NSEP), seeks proposals for the 2015 South Asian Flagship Languages Initiative. This initiative builds off the resources of the NSEP-sponsored Boren Scholarships and Fellowships, and The Language Flagship.

NSEP was created by Congress in 1991 to address the need to increase the ability of Americans to communicate and compete globally by knowing languages and cultures of other countries. NSEP recognizes that the scope of national security has expanded to include not only the traditional concerns of protecting and promoting American well-being, but also the new challenges of a global society, including sustainable development, environmental degradation, global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, and economic competitiveness.

The South Asian Flagship Languages Initiative is a program designed to increase the number of Boren Scholars and Fellows engaged in the study of Hindi or Urdu. Its purpose is to help meet the critical need for specialists in a range of academic and professional fields who are able to function effectively in these languages.

Please find a copy of the application guidelines here.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DEADLINE FOR THE RECEIPT OF PROPOSALS IS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2015. A technical assistance webinar will be offered on Friday, August 7, 2015 from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. ET.
