2017 CARLA Summer Institute Funding Opportunities

Registration is now open for the 2017 CARLA Summer Institutes!

The one-week institutes run July 10-28, 2017 and cover a variety of topics including second language acquisition basics for teachers, classroom assessment development, content-based instruction, and implementing technology in the second language classroom. In addition, an online five-week session on Using the Web for Communicative Language Learning runs from July 10 to August 13, 2017.

For instructors of French, Spanish and German

The PACE Project will provide funding for up to ten instructors of French and Spanish at the University of Minnesota to attend one of the 2017 CARLA summer institutes. Funding will be awarded to the first ten French and Spanish instructors who apply online before April 1, 2017. Pending availability, funding will be opened up for German instructors who apply online before April 1. Each instructor may apply for funding to only one institute. Please note that some institutes fill up quickly. Please indicate your interest as soon as possible.

Questions about this special funding can be directed to Stephanie Treat at treat002@umn.edu.

The PACE Project is funded by a grant from The Language Flagship.

For LCTL instructors

CARLA offers instructors of Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTL) at the University of Minnesota a special scholarship to attend one of the 2017 CARLA summer institutes. Instructors are required to pay a non-refundable $25 commitment fee, but the balance of the institute cost will be paid by CARLA –a value up to $325! A limited number of scholarships will be awarded to current University of Minnesota LCTL instructors on a first-come, first-served basis until April 1, 2017. Each instructor may apply for funding to only one institute. Please note that some institutes fill up quickly. Please indicate your interest as soon as possible.
