Dear Business Language Professional,
In order to provide incentives for language faculty to teach and do research in a business context, a consortium of Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBERs) will award grants to three language professionals at U.S. colleges or universities.
One grant of $3,000 will be awarded to a project in a critical or less commonly taught foreign language and two awards of $2,500 will be awarded to research or teaching projects in other foreign languages.
The grants are made possible through the CIBER Consortium for Business Language Research and Teaching (BLRT). Organized by the University of Illinois CIBER, the consortium also includes CIBERs at Indiana University, University of Florida, University of Hawaii, University of North Carolina, University of Pennsylvania, University of Pittsburgh, and the University of South Carolina. These eight CIBERs have pledged a portion of their Title VI CIBER grant funding to establish the BLRT Awards, in order to encourage faculty, lecturers and graduate students in foreign language departments to add a business-language dimension to their research and teaching.
Winners of the 2014 BLRT awards will be announced at the CIBER Business Foreign Language Conference to be hosted by the Brigham Young University CIBER in Park City, Utah on April 24-26, 2014.
All BLRT applicants are encouraged to register for the conference. 2014 BLRT winners will present their research findings at the 2015 CIBER Business Foreign Language Conference (location to be determined).
Note: Doctoral students must submit a letter of support from their advisor along with the online application.
