Message 2: ELF Request for Proposals, 2002

Date: Wed, 19 Dec 2001 09:15:15 -0500

ELF Request for Proposals, 2002

The Endangered Language Fund is pleased to announce our
Request for Proposals for 2002. These grants are made
possible by the generosity of our members. Please see our
website for information on joining the Fund.

Request for Proposals, 2002
Endangered Language Fund
The Endangered Language Fund provides grants
for 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.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; 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.
Eligible expenses include consultant fees, tapes,
films,travel, etc. Grants are normally for one year periods, though
extensions may be applied for.&nbsp; We expect grants in this
round to be less than $4,000 in size, and to average about
$2,000.

REQUIRED INFORMATION:
COVER PAGE:

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT:
Beginning on a separate page, provide a description
of the project. This should normally take two pages, single
spaced, but the maximum is five pages. Be detailed about the
type of material that is to be collected and/or produced, and
the value it will have to the native community (including
relatives and descendants who do not speak the language) and
to linguistic science. Give a brief description of the state
of endangerment of the language in question.

BUDGET:
On a separate page, prepare an itemized budget
that lists expected costs for the project. Estimates are
acceptable, but they must be realistic. Please translate the
amounts into US dollars. List other sources of support you
are currently receiving or expect to receive and other
applications that relate to the current one.

LETTER OF SUPPORT:
Two letters of support are recommended, but not
required. Note that these letters, if sent separately, must
arrive on or before the deadline (April 22nd, 2002) in order
to be considered. If more than two letters are sent, only the
first two received will be read.

LIMIT TO ONE PROPOSAL
A researcher can be primary researcher on only
one proposal.

DEADLINE
Applications must be received by APRIL 22nd,
2002.
Decisions will be delivered by the end of May, 2002.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF RECEIPT
Receipt of application will be made by email if an
email address is given. Otherwise, the applicant must include a
self-addressed post-card in order to receive the
acknowledgment.

IF A GRANT IS AWARDED
Before receiving any funds, university-based applicants
must show that they have met the requirements of their
university's human subjects' committee. Tribal- or other-
based applicants must provide equivalent assurance that
proper protocols are being used.
If a grant is made and accepted, the recipient
is required to provide the Endangered Language Fund with a short
formal report of the project and to provide the Fund with
copies of all audio and video recordings made with ELF funds,
accompanying transcriptions, as well as publications
resulting from materials obtained with the assistance of the
grant.
