The International and Foreign Language Education (IFLE) office administers Title VI (domestic) and Fulbright-Hays (overseas) grant and fellowship programs that strengthen foreign language instruction, area/international studies teaching and research, professional development for educators, and curriculum development at the K-12, graduate, and postsecondary levels.

  • Advance national security by developing a pipeline of highly proficient linguists and experts in critical world regions
  • Contribute to developing a globally competent workforce able to engage with a multilingual and multicultural clientele at home and abroad
  • Expand access to international and foreign language learning, especially for traditionally underserved students.
  • Support teaching and research on critical world regions, languages, and issues
