Program Description

The Office of Citizen Exchanges of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for one cooperative agreement for the FY 2014 National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y), which provides overseas foreign language instruction for American high school students and those recently graduated. Public and private non-profit organizations, meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3), may submit proposals to cooperate with ECA in the overall administration of NSLI-Y organizational responsibilities and the implementation of overseas summer and academic year language programs for approximately 630 individual participant scholarships according to the guidance detailed in the Project Objectives, Goals and Implementation (POGI). NSLI-Y programs funded by this award will take place during summer 2015 and academic year 2015-2016 in countries and locations where Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Hindi, Korean, Persian (Tajiki or Farsi), Russian, and Turkish are widely spoken. The Bureau anticipates that the single award recipient will manage the comprehensive organizational and administrative responsibilities of this program, and will identify qualified sub-award recipients to implement many of the overseas language programs.
