Department of Education: International Education AAU FY19 Funding Brief

International Education Title VI Chart AAU

AAU urges Congress to provide at least $76 million for Title VI International Education programs in FY19.

Title VI National Resource Centers (NRC) and Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships provide students from around the country with world-class opportunities for intensive study of world areas and foreign languages, particularly less-commonly taught languages, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Fulbright-Hays programs provide overseas funding to current and prospective U.S. educators to participate in advanced study and research.

The NRC and other Title VI programs have created an unrivaled technical training system producing linguistically proficient, areasavvy graduates who go on to successful careers in government, military, academia, and the private sector. These graduates educate thousands of students, teachers, policymakers, military and diplomatic officials, faculty, and the general public, and engage in diplomatic missions in areas of strategic national importance around the world.
