The AHA has signed on to a letter from the Coalition for International Education (CIE) to leaders in the US House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations. The CIE letter endorses a letter from 98 House members requesting that the Committee on Appropriations include $91 million in funding for International Education and Foreign Language Studies in the FY25 budget. “To safeguard our nation’s capacity on all world areas and languages during current and potential future global crises, we must continuously replenish our pool of professionals with international expertise,” the letter states. “Robust federal funding is also essential to ensuring that students from all racial and socio-economic backgrounds can access these high-quality educational programs.”
