CLC Projects:

Grants and Funding

Guidelines for CLC Proposals

The Chicago Language Center has funding through its membership in the Consortium for Language Teaching and Learning (CLTL) to support the enhancement of instruction of all languages at all levels. CLTL grants are rather modest; we seek to fairly fund promising pedagogical development projects and professional development activities that have the potential to have an impact on instruction here and across the Consortium. Current members of the Consortium include Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Princeton University, and Yale University.

Proposals may include:

  • • funding for a workshop or symposium involving participants beyond the U of C
  • • professional travel for meetings or workshops (limit $750.00)
  • • development of instructional materials that will have an impact and can be implemented beyond the U of C

You are encouraged to discuss your ideas with Chicago Language Center staff, or with a colleague who has successfully completed a project. Summaries of successful proposals are available upon request.
