Endangered Language Fund, The:
Request for Proposals

  • http://www.endangeredlanguagefund.org/request.html
  • Fund Type: Grant. Residential: . Eligibility: Faculty; Researchers and language activists from any country are eligible to apply. Awards can be made to institutions, but no administrative costs (F&A) are covered.
  • Award: Less than $4000
  • Deadline: April 20
  • Details: The Endangered Language Fund provides grants for language maintenance and linguistic field work. The work most likely to be funded is that which serves both the native community and the field of linguistics. Work which has immediate applicability to one group and more distant application to the other will also be considered. Publishing subventions are a low priority, although they will be considered. Proposals can originate in any country. The language involved must be in danger of disappearing within a generation or two. Endangerment is a continuum, and the location on the continuum is one factor in our funding decisions.

    Eligible expenses include consultant fees, tapes, films, travel, etc. Overhead is not allowed. Grants are normally for a one year period, though extensions may be applied for.
