Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP)

We are pleased to announce the opening of the Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP) grant application! TCLP is fully funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State and helps U.S. K-12 schools to launch new or expand existing Arabic or Chinese language programs. 
  
TCLP makes it easy for U.S. schools to grow their critical language programs by placing fully-funded teachers from Egypt, Morocco, or China to teach Arabic or Chinese as a foreign language for an academic year. By sharing their languages and cultures, the teachers bring global competencies to their host schools and communities. Host a teacher in 2022 by starting an application today! 
  
Since 2006, TCLP has sponsored over 300 highly trained teachers that have worked in over schools across 39 states and impacted over 87,500 students! TCLP teachers have also collectively conducted over 25,500 hours of cultural outreach to bring international experiences to their host schools and communities. 
  
The application deadline for TCLP host schools is Friday, October 22, 2021 at 11:59pm EST.
