Recognizing and reinforcing the contributions of those changemakers shaping the future of language education is an important investment in our communities. Our growing slate of scholarships and awards seeks to identify and support current and future educators, as well as the individuals and organizations across fields making important strides in fostering connection through language.
Lead with Languages Teacher Scholarship Program
Dedicated to addressing a critical national shortage by bolstering the pipeline of future language educators, this award provides merit-based scholarships to graduating high school seniors committed to pursuing the language teaching profession in languages other than English.
Meet the Language Educators of the Future
Hailing from nine home states and aspiring to teach six languages, ten outstanding students joined the scholarship program in 2022, forming the fourth class of Lead with Languages Teacher Scholars.
ACTFL Professional Awards
Managed by our partner organization, the ACTFL Awards Program honors outstanding contributions to the field of language education—including achievement in areas of teacher education, innovative use of technology in language instruction, leadership, research, elementary language programs, the teaching of culture, and more.
We invite you to celebrate achievement with us by sharing about these opportunities with your network. Application and nomination periods for each of the scholarship and awards programs will reopen in Spring 2023.
