About Critical Language Projects

As part of the Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP), program alumni, current exchange teachers, mentor teachers, administrative representatives, and U.S. schools and districts are eligible and encouraged to apply for grants to fund Critical Language Projects (CLPs). These projects may range from $500 to $3,000 and are designed to complement the TCLP experience by contributing to the enhancement of critical language programs in U.S. schools and furthering the teaching of English, Arabic, or Chinese as a Foreign Language in the home countries of the international alumni. In addition, Critical Language Projects promote mutual understanding and lasting relationships between program alumni and their U.S. colleagues.

To apply for a CLP grant, TCLP alumni teachers and schools should submit a completed application. and any supporting documents (i.e. resumes, support letters, proposed agenda) to tclp@americancouncils.org. The next round of applications is due November 30, 2016.
