The International and Foreign Language Education (IFLE) office at the U.S. Department of Education is pleased to announce the opening of the fiscal year (FY) 2021 Title VI Business and International Education (BIE) Program competition.
The BIE program provides grants to institutions of higher education that enter into an agreement with a trade association to improve the academic teaching of the business curriculum and to conduct outreach activities that will assist the local business community to compete in the global arena. The purpose of the program is to meet the nation’s security and economic needs through the development of a national capacity in foreign languages and area and international business studies.
IFLE expects to make 20 new awards, totaling approximately $1.7 million, under the FY 2021 BIE competition. The application is now available at www.grants.gov.
