IIE Language Flagship Russian language program funding opportunity

The Language Flagship is pleased to invite language faculty and administrators
at U.S. undergraduate institutions to learn more about an upcoming Russian
language program funding opportunity. The Language Flagship is preparing to
announce a full and open competition for all domestic undergraduate Flagship
programs, to be launched in late spring 2023. As part of its mission to
support and improve language education in the United States, The Language
Flagship has established a network of 31 Flagship programs at 23 institutions
across the country, including eight Russian Flagship programs. Flagship
students work towards professional proficiency in a Flagship language, gain
advanced cultural skills through time spent overseas, and graduate uniquely

an informational webinar series. This two- part series will include valuable
information about The Language Flagship Model and important things to know
before the upcoming competition.
