Endangered Language Fund: Language Legacies Grant ProgramDeadline: March 15, 2019
The Endangered Language Fund provides grants for language documentation and revitalization, and for linguistic fieldwork. The Language Legacies grant program supports documentation and revitalization efforts throughout the world. The work most likely to be funded is that which serves both the native community and the field of linguistics, although projects which have immediate applicability to one group and more distant applicability to the other will also be considered. Support for publication is a low priority, although it will be considered. 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 funding decisions.
Amount: The Fund expects grants in this round to be less than $4,000, and to average about $2,000. Grants are for a one-year period, though extensions may be applied for.
Eligibility: Language activists and researchers from any country are eligible to apply. Awards can be made to institutions, but no administrative (overhead, indirect) costs are covered.
Note that many languages in the northwestern United States of America are not eligible for the Language Legacies program, and are covered instead by the Native Voices Endowment (NVE) program (http://www.endangeredlanguagefund.org/native-voices-endowment.html).
