The National Foreign Language Center at the University of Maryland invites you to attend a workshop session “Applying for a STARTALK Grant: Designing a Winning Program”.

STARTALK provides funding for summer programs in critical languages for K-12 students and/or current and prospective teachers of levels K-16. This workshop will provide guidance for those interested in applying for a STARTALK grant and provide you with information about the selection criteria. Data on reviewers’ findings will be shared. Participants will also be introduced to the STARTALK curriculum templates which are used
to design curriculum.

Although there is no charge for this workshop, you must register with the NFLC in advance. Enrollment is limited to 60. If you are interested, please contact Scott Nichols (snichols@nflc.org, or 301-405-9823) to reserve a space before November 7th.
