The National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE) is the only national professional organization devoted to representing bilingual/multilingual students and bilingual and dual language development of education professionals. NABE places a high value on the academic, linguistic, and culture of native and foreign languages, and understands that by advocating for educational equity and excellence for bilingual/multilingual students, we are investing in our children’s education, our nation’s future leaders, and our world’s well being.


The continued success of our mission and vision for bilingualism, biliteracy & multiculturalism for National and International empowerment, relies on the generosity of individuals, businesses, and corporations that become NABE Ambassadors, who believe and recognize the importance of their support of bilingual/multilingual education and its empowerment towards future generations; ambassadors that continuously choose to create unity within a diverse and interdependent world.


If you are interested in becoming a NABE Ambassador or would like to provide a financial donation to the bilingual education scholarship programs, please go to our "Donations" page. You can also contact us at (225) 209-0224 or via email at


Proceeds will fund scholarship awards to educators in two main areas for professional development: attendance at the NABE 2020 Conference in Las Vegas, and participation in teacher preparation programs designed to encourage the development of bilingual professionals.


Thank you in advance for your support and commitment to bilingualism and biliteracy Sincerely,


Josefina Tinajero, Ph.D.
