311 Officer and Enlisted Airmen and Guardians Selected for AFCLC’s Language Enabled Airman Program

  • Published

Following a rigorous selection board process this summer, the Air Force Culture and Language Center selected 311 Airmen and Guardians in 42 languages from 1,119 applications for the Language Enabled Airman Program. For the 2022 cycle, the top 10 languages to fill current needs and future requirements are Spanish, Korean, Tagalog, Russian, Japanese, German, French, Chinese-Mandarin, Ukrainian, and Portuguese-Brazilian.

Participation in LEAP is voluntary, and the application process is highly competitive. To become a LEAP scholar, Airmen and Guardians must demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language specified on the Air Force Strategic Language List, receive endorsement from their unit commander, and compete via a rigorous board selection process. Applicants are selected for LEAP based on existing language proficiency, potential to achieve higher levels of language proficiency, and Air Force language requirements.

AFCLC is proud to announce those Airmen and Guardians who met these requirements and are now members of this career-spanning program.

Results were announced via a Personnel Services Delivery Memorandum (PSDM). Service members may access/search for 2022 PSDMs on myPers at
