BLRT Grants

Providing incentives for foreign language faculty to teach and do research in a business context.

The grants are made possible through the CIBER Consortium for Business Language Research and Teaching. Organized by the University of Illinois CIBER, the consortium also includes CIBERs at Indiana University, University of Florida, University of Illinois, University of Hawaii, University of North Carolina, University of Pennsylvania, University of Pittsburgh, and the University of South Carolina. These eight CIBERs have pledged a portion of their Title VI CIBER grant funding to establish the BLRT Awards, in order to encourage faculty, lecturers and graduate students in foreign language departments to add a business-language dimension to their research and teaching.
