Programs and Competitions

The Language Flagship is committed to continuing its investment in advancing language learning in the U.S. for the long term and, accordingly, requires evidence of significant institutional commitment to support and sustain institutional Flagship efforts. The Language Flagship only commits to long-term funding for programs if the host institutions demonstrate a similar commitment to support the language education infrastructure required for institutionalization and sustainment of these efforts. Institutional support must be demonstrated by a clear commitment of financial support to core operations of the project.
