Reauthorizaiton of the Higher Education Act


International Education Programs Proposals

The Department funds a variety of international education programs to help meet the nation’s need for expertise in foreign languages, area studies and international studies, and for a more internationally literate citizenry.

We are proposing the following minor changes to the legislation to eliminate unfunded programs, to strengthen outreach to K-12, to encourage greater use of technology, and to include a new section on evaluation.


NOTE: The administration will seek appropriations for the authorized levels shown in the bill, within an overall budget that adheres to the discretionary spending limits to which the President and Congress have agreed in the pending Balanced Budget Act of 1997.
