The Institute of International Education (IIE) is pleased to share with you application guidelines for the Language Training Center (LTC) Program. Through this solicitation, the LTC Program is seeking proposals from U.S. Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) to accelerate the development of foundational or higher-level expertise in strategic languages and regional studies for Department of Defense (DoD) personnel.

The LTC Program is a major initiative of the Defense Language and National Security Education Office (DLNSEO).  Through a partnership between DoD and IHEs, the LTC Program has supported the language and cultural training needs of a wide range of DoD personnel, including military linguists, intelligence analysts, special operations forces, foreign area officers, and the general purpose forces.

The deadline for the receipt of proposals is Thursday, March 17, 2016.  We ask that you share this information broadly with individuals that may be interested in this opportunity, including your institutions’ deans and colleagues in area studies or other relevant areas. The request for proposal will be posted on the LTC website at http://www.dodltc.org/request-proposal.

A webinar for institutions will be held on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Eastern Time to field questions regarding this solicitation.  A separate briefing for DoD components interested in learning about the program will be held on Thursday, February 4, 2016 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.  To participate in either webinar, please send an email to LTC@iie.org indicating the names and email addresses of the attendees.  The applicant will receive a confirmation email with instructions for participation in the webinar.

FAQs will be periodically updated and posted on the LTC and DLNSEO websites.

IIE serves as the administrative agent for the LTC Program and considers it a distinct pleasure to take part in this important effort. Thank you in advance for your interest in this special initiative and for your assistance in distributing this information to other interested colleagues.
