National Council for Languages and
International Studies
 Statement on the President’s FY14 Budget
April 12, 2013
US Department of Education:
The Joint National Committee for Languages
welcomes the
President’s FY2014 budget, and applauds the efforts to restore funding to
the
International
and
Foreign
Language
Education
(IFLE) programs of the US Department of Education.
JNCL
-
NCLIS
notes, however,
that the additional $6.9m in
funding
requested
for FY14, bringing the total request
to $80m, is still more than 40% below the FY10 level of $125m for these
vital programs. Moreover,
significant and nationally important education research
continues
to go without funding, as several
of the
constituent
programs of IFLE remain zeroed out.
JNCL
-
NCLIS
continues to call for
robust
funding of the nation’s primary program at the higher education level for
foreign language and
international
education
.
JNCL
-
N
CLIS
is disappointed that the Foreign
Language
Assistance Program was not reinstated in
the FY14 budget, and notes that the $75m request for the Well Rounded
Curriculum
grants to State
Education Agencies falls more than $400m short of the six grant program
s it would replace.
JNCL
-
NCLIS
opposes this request and continues to advocate for restoration of the full
$25m funding for
the
Foreign
Language
Assistance Program.
 US Department of
Defense
:
JNCL
-
NCLIS
notes that the $58m request for the Defense
Language
and National
Security
Education Office is $180,000
below the FY13 level,
and more than $9m
below the FY12 level.
JNCL
-
NCLIS
is concerned that this reduction will adversely impact the ability
of DLNSEO to prosecute its mission, and may lead to reduced funding for the
Boren program, the
Flagship program, Project GO, and for the policy and oversight work of
DLSNEO.
JNCL
-
NCLIS
not
es that the shift to the Pacific in DoD
priorities
as well as the need to focus on other strategic
missions as the US shifts away from Southwest Asia will drive additional
language requirements for
DoD, and that DLNSEO needs to be resourced for this shift.

 Department of State:
JNCL

NCLIS
is alarmed by the 6.6
% reduction in the funding for
international exchanges in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs
from FY13 levels, from
602
m
to
562
m
.
International
exchanges, including programs for US students to study abroad, are a
bedrock component of our education in foreign languages, and are invaluable
as a tool of
informal
diplomacy.

calls for the full funding of the programs of the ECA at FY13 leve
