NOW OPEN: Endangered Language Fund

Endangered Language FundHi Funds Fans – another great opportunity for language enthustiasts!

The Endangered Language Fund has launched the 2013 Request for Proposals.  Researchers and language activists from any country are eligible to apply. Awards can be made to institutions, but no administrative (overhead, indirect) costs will be covered.  In this round of granting, requests should be up to $2,000 and not more than $4,000Deadline: April 22nd, 2013.

These grants are given in the area of 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.
