To support the professional development of Less Commonly Taught Language (LCTL) teachers, the University of Minnesota's National Resource Centers offer a limited number of $600 stipends for LCTL teachers to help defray the cost of attending any of the CARLA summer institutes (see below). The University NRCs––the European Studies Consortium (ESC) and the Institute for Global Studies (IGS)––are funded by the U.S. Department of Education and generously sponsor this program as part of their mission to support LCTL teachers. Applications are due by April 8, 2011.
