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 an 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. Please visit the LTC website for additional information about the program.
Complete application guidelines and materials for the 2022 LTC Request for Proposals can be accessed by visiting https://www.dodltc.org/2022-
The deadline for the receipt of proposals is February 25, 2022 (4:30 PM ET). Institutions interested in submitting a proposal are encouraged to attend a technical assistance webinar scheduled for Tuesday, January 18, 2022, from 3:00 – 4:00 pm (ET). A webinar for DoD components interested in learning more about the program will be held on Thursday, February 3, 2022, from 3:00 – 4:00 pm (ET). Registration details for both webinars are available at the RFP website. 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.
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.
