Grants to USA PreK-12 LEAs to develop or improve foreign language learning programs for students. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended for public schools in an LEA that hosts a unit of the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC).
The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) seeks innovative applications for the establishment, improvement, or expansion of world language programs targeting elementary and secondary students in order to enable successful students, as they advance from elementary school through secondary school, to achieve advanced level of proficiency in those languages. In addition, any Local Education Agency (LEA) awarded a grant under this program must use the funds to support programs that show promise of being continued beyond the grant period and demonstrate approaches that could be disseminated to and duplicated in other LEAs. Awarded projects may also include a professional development component.
The House and Senate Appropriations Committees are concerned about the lack of military personnel with advanced language skills and believes this could be addressed by promoting foreign language study programs targeting elementary and secondary students. As a result, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 authorized the development of a competitive grant program to provide support to eligible entities for the establishment, improvement, or expansion of world language study for students of public schools in a LEA that hosts a unit of the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC).
Applicants’ project narrative must focus on one or more of the following scope areas:
