Tuition Assistance Program
Liberty Language Services' Tuition Assistance Program aims to help more bilinguals become trained as professional medical interpreters so they can be a bridge of communication for limited English proficient patients and their providers.
If you are applying to work as a Liberty medical interpreter and still need your 40-hour medical interpreter training, we offer two options for financial tuition assistance: The Practicum and The Tuition Grant.
In order to be eligible for any financial tuition assistance from Liberty, you must meet the following criteria:
Has submitted an online application and is committed to work as a freelance on-site medical interpreter for Liberty Language Services

Has a flexible schedule (Monday-Friday between 7am-7pm) to accept interpreting assignments
NOTE: Applicants with full-time jobs or other major scheduling conflicts will NOT be eligible for the Practicum or the Tuition Grant.

(Amharic, Farsi, French, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, Vietnamese)
Applicants that sign the Practicum Agreement will have the opportunity to pay for their medical interpreter training of choice through their work hours:

Tuition Grant Agreement
For Urgently Needed Languages
