The Institute of International Education (IIE) is pleased to announce the release of several open competitions for domestic Language Flagship programs in Arabic, Korean, Portuguese, and Russian.  The Language Flagship is a major initiative of the National Security Education Program (NSEP).  IIE considers it a distinct pleasure to serve as the administrative agent for this important effort.


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 Language Flagship has successfully launched new and innovative programs of advanced instruction in Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, and Turkish. Through this solicitation we hope to identify and invest in the immediate development of U.S. campus-based Undergraduate Language Flagship Programs in Arabic, Korean, Portuguese, and Russian.


Attached please find a copy of the program and application guidelines for these solicitations. (The guidelines are also availablehere.) We ask that you share this information with colleagues and any other individuals or entities that may be interested in this opportunity. 


Please note that the deadline for the receipt of proposals is 4:30 pm (EST), Thursday, April 12, 2018.


A technical assistance webinar will be offered for each language program. To register, please

Yours sincerely,

Chelsea Sypher
