Contribute to the Mission of CAL:

Contributions to the Center for Applied Linguistics strengthen our collective efforts to promote access, equity and mutual understanding for linguistically and culturally diverse people nationally and around the world via research-based program initiatives directly related to our mission. Donations to CAL fund our “Multicultural Fellowship Fund” to support the work of fellows related to CAL’s mission and values.


To promote language learning and cultural understanding by serving as a trusted source for research, resources, and policy analysis. Through its work, CAL seeks solutions to issues involving language and culture as they relate to access and equity in education and society around the globe.
