Language Program Funding: Where to Begin
Download this infographic and learn how to identify public and private funding programs for language-learning as part of your overall strategic approach to funding.
On average, about 8% of a school district's budget is federally funded. Funds are distributed through formula funding and competitive funding. Formula funding is allocated based on the number of eligible students while competitive funding requires responding to a request for proposal outlining how awarded funding will be used. Rosetta Stone® education solutions are aligned to several federal funding programs.
The bulk of education funding is provided through state and local funds raised through taxes and other means. State education agencies (SEAs) distribute funds to districts based on formula funding, and in some cases, competitive grants. This information, along with available funding opportunities, can be found at each SEA website.
Grants from Private or Foundational Funding
