Message 2: Small Grants Awarded for Less Commonly Taught Lang (LCTLs)

Small Grants Awarded for Less Commonly Taught Languages

The National Council of Organizations of Less Commonly Taught Languages
(NCOLCTL) is pleased to announce the awarding of mini-grants to the
following individuals and organizations:

American Council of Teachers of Russian (ACTR)
 Materials Development in Support of the U.S. Olympiada of Spoken

Alla Nedashkivska, University of Alberta
 Instructional Materials for Advanced Ukrainian

North American Association for Celtic Language Teachers (NAACLT)
 Celtic Language Field Survey and Analysis

North American Association of Teachers of Czech (NAATC)
 Guest Speaker at the International Roundtable on Czech Language
 Teaching Methods

Ellen Rafferty, University of Wisconsin
 Website of Indonesian Photographic Images

Faye Valtadoros, Lakeview High School, Battle Creek, Michigan
 Professional Development Support (The Japan Foundation
 Intensive Training Program for Teaching of Japanese)

Etsuyo Yuasa, The Ohio State University
 Individualized Instruction Materials for Advanced Japanese

While the purposes for which the grants will be used vary, the principal
criterion for every award was its use for a project that promotes field
building in the Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs). Each of these
one-time only grants is for $2000 or less. All awardees have
provided a significant personal and/or institutional contribution to
the success of the proposed project. The grant recipients are required
to submit a final report describing how the grant was used, the results of
the project, and a copy of any product stemming from the project.

To the extent that Council resources permit, the Council hopes to be able to
announce similar annual mini-grant competitions in future years to continue
to provide seed money support for educators and scholars in the LCTLs. It
is anticipated that competition for such grants will henceforth be announced
in the spring, with the results known by the end of May.

Inquiries may be directed to the Council Executive Director, Scott
McGinnis, at
