2014 Centers for International Business Education Competition Announced

The International and Foreign Language Education (IFLE) office - part of the US Department of Education, has announced its Centers for International Business Education grant competition for the 2014 fiscal year.

The program provides funding opportunities for higher education institutions, for the purposes of curriculum research and development, in addition to training on current issues relevant to U.S. trade and global competitiveness.

Projects funded by the grants will focus on enriching skills needed for international relations. These include language instruction in critical foreign languages to provide an understanding of the cultures and customs of U.S. trading partners; and the teaching of business techniques in international contexts.
