The World Language Advancement and Readiness Grants Program is accepting applications from Local Education Agencies (LEAs) for elementary and secondary programs until May 7, 2021. Innovative applications for the establishment, improvement, or expansion of world language programs are being prioritized. The programs should target elementary and secondary students as they advance from elementary school through secondary school to achieve advanced level of proficiency in those languages.
In addition, any Local Education Agency (LEA) awarded a grant under this program must use the funds to support programs that show promise of being continued beyond the grant period and demonstrate approaches that could be disseminated to and duplicated in other LEAs. Awarded projects may also include a professional development component. DoDEA intends to award multiple grants, subject to the availability of funds. Each individual grant award will be a minimum of $500,000.00 and may be up to a maximum of $3,000,000, for a period of up to five (5) years.
Eligible Applicants: Independent school districts
Award Ceiling: $3,000,000
