Foundation / Corporation
The Endangered Language Fund (ELF)
Grants of up to $4,000 to USA, Canada, and International individuals and institutions for activities to preserve eligible languages. Funding may be used for travel, equipment, consultations, and other project-related costs. Requests may be submitted for language documentation and revitalization and for linguistic fieldwork on endangered languages.
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. 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 the funding decisions.
The Endangered Language Fund is pleased to be able to expand the scope of its invited proposals through the MKARL Fund (in honor of Michael Krauss) to include work on archival initiatives and efforts. In particular, proposals are encouraged that focus on the creation of archives, depositing material to archives, accessing archives, and the hosting of and/or attendance at workshops, seminars, or institutes that offer training and support on archiving activities and initiatives.
The International Phonetic Association is interested in co-funding awards for projects that include a phonetic component, especially systematic phonetic documentation of the kind leading to Illustrations of the IPA.
