The Business Language Research and Teaching grants were established in 2010 by a consortium of 13 Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) who pledged a portion of their Title VI funding from the US Department of Education to encourage faculty and graduate students in foreign language departments to add a business-language dimension to their teaching and research. During the 2022–2026 grant cycle, all 16 CIBERs have continued support of this important initiative with competitions scheduled in 2023 and 2025.
In 2023, two $4,000 and one $5,000 awards will be made to research or teaching projects in foreign languages (excluding ESL and ASL). The 2023 BLRT recipients will present their research findings at the spring 2024 International Symposium on Language for Specific Purposes. Recipients will also receive a travel stipend of up to $1,000 to cover costs associated with presenting at this conference.
