National Flagship Language Program (NFLP)

2007 National Flagship Language Program (NFLP) Fellowships

NFLP is designed to train participants to reach professional working proficiency in a target language, as measured by the federal Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) level 3 and/or the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) superior level.

**Note: The application deadline for the 2007 NFLP competition is January 17, 2007.**
