Funding Opportunity: Language Legacies Grant Program (The Endangered Language Fund)

Deadline for Applications: March 20, 2017

Title: Language Legacies Grant Program
Sponsor: The Endangered Language Fund
Amount: Avg. $2,000 

Description: The Endangered Language Fund provides grants for language documentation and revitalization, and for linguistic fieldwork. 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 our funding decisions.  Eligibility: Language activists and researchers from any country are eligible to apply.

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Brook Davis ( in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return the Proposal Review Form by March 20.
