International Education

The Title VI and Fulbright-Hays programs at the US Department of Education support development of national capacity for international understanding and foreign language education, including supporting National Research Centers, Area Overseas Research Centers, and related programs.

Current Funding Status

On June 28, the Senate Appropriations Committee approved an FY19 funding bill (S.3158) maintaining flat funding for Title VI and Fulbright-Hays, allocating $65.1 million to Title VI and $7.06 million for Fulbright-Hays. 

On December 20, 2017, Sens. Todd Young and Tammy Baldwin introduced the Advancing International and Foreign Language Act (S.2255). The bipartisan legislation reauthorizes Title VI of the Higher Education Act and, like the House Democrats' companion legislation H.R. 4491 , would extend the authorization of all currently funded programs including Foreign Language and Area Studies fellowships and American Overseas Research Centers.
