Teachers of Critical Languages Program

We are pleased to announce the opening of the Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP) grant application! TCLP is a federally funded program that helps U.S. K-12 schools to launch new or expand existing Arabic or Chinese language classes.
TCLP makes it easy for U.S. schools to grow their critical language programs by placing fully-funded teachers from Egypt, Morocco, or China to teach Arabic or Chinese as a foreign language for an academic year. By sharing their languages and cultures, the teachers bring global competencies to their host schools and communities. Host a teacher in 2020 by starting an application today!
Since 2006, TCLP has sponsored 318 highly trained teachers that have worked in 201 schools across 39 states and impacted over 87,300 students! TCLP teachers have also collectively conducted over 15,000 hours of cultural outreach to bring international experiences to their host schools and communities.
We invite you to learn more about hosting a teacher at your school and to speak with host school alumni about their experiences with TCLP by attending a live informational webinar at 4:00pm (EST) on November 14, 2019 or December 5, 2019.

To attend a webinar, watch a recording of a past webinar, or to apply to TCLP, please visit The application deadline for TCLP host schools is Monday, January 27, 2020 at 11:59pm EST
