Grant Opportunity - Teachers of Critical Languages Program from the American Councils for International Education

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 2018 by starting an applicationtoday!
Since 2006, TCLP has sponsored 262 highly trained teachers that have worked in 173 schools across 38 states and impacted over 79,000 students! TCLP teachers have also collectively conducted over 14,200 hours of cultural outreach to bring international experiences to their host schools and communities.
We invite you to learn more about hosting a teacher at your school and to speak with host school alumni about their experiences with TCLP by attending a live informational webchat at 4:00pm (EST) on one of these dates:

Tía Tula Spanish School in Salamanca
Tía Tula Spanish School in Salamanca, in collaboration with the Government of Spain (Junta de Castilla y León), organizes a Scholarship Program of one week during summer 2017 for Spanish teachers in the US at high school, college or university level, with Spanish teacher training/ refresher course, accommodation, cultural activities, and travel insurance included. They will be granted on a first-signed, first-served basis. It is a very complete program with an optional Spanish Culture and Conversation Course.

Usually, teachers are awarded with professional development credits towards license renewal with this program by their school district. Since it depends on district regulations, we highly recommend consulting the school district.

In the past two summers, teachers had an amazing time in Salamanca meeting other Spanish teachers, finding new methodology and resources for class, and visiting Spain and Europe during holidays!
