Advocacy Alert

Your advocacy for language education is critical right now. The Joint National Committee for Languages (JNCL)-National Council for Languages and International Studies (NCLIS) www.languagepolicy.org has issued an advocacy alert.

 The President's Budget Request for FY 2021 eliminates funding for the Department of Education's international education programs (Title VI and Fulbright-Hays). 

As Congress works on FY 2021 funding bills, take action to urge your Members of Congress to provide at least $106 million in funding for Title VI and Fulbright-Hays.
