The ACTFL Research Priorities Project supports empirical research on six priority areas that are currently critical to improving foreign language education. Proposals can initiate a new research study, support/expand a study under way, or explore an emerging research area that is connected to one or more Research Priority areas. The research grants are funded by ACTFL.
The five priority areas are:
Integration of Language, Culture, and Content
Foreign Language Teacher Development
High-Performing Language Programs
Language Use in the Community
Preference will be given to proposals that focus on the cognitive developments of language learning.
The deadline for proposals is June 1 at 5 pm.
