Small Grants Available for the Less Commonly Taught Languages


The National Council of Organizations of Less Commonly Taught
Languages (NCOLCTL) is pleased to announce a competition for
mini-grants. Both individuals and LCTL organizations are encouraged
to submit proposals. The mini-grants, non-renewable and not to exceed
$2000, must be used for projects that promote field building in the
Less Commonly Taught Languages, such as contributing to the Council's
annual conference. Purposes for which the grants may be used include
the following:

- travel to a conference in order to make a presentation about
language pedagogy or materials development
- preparation for publication of a field analysis by an organization
of NCOLCTL
- attending a workshop or institute aimed specifically at LCTL
pedagogy or materials
- provision of partial support for a guest presenter at a workshop or
meeting for teachers of a particular LCTL.


Application criteria: Individuals who apply must be actively involved
in LCTL education and be members of a LCTL organization that is a
member of the Council, or work in a LCTL that does not belong to any
language organization. Proposals should include: (a) the name(s) and
qualifications of project member(s) submitting the proposal; (b) a
2-page, double-spaced project description with a statement of project
need and how the funds will be used, including any "product" to be
produced under the grant; and (c) a timeline for completion.


Applications will be strengthened by the inclusion of letters of
support from the individual's institution and/or a NCOLCTL member
organization. Preference will be given to projects involving
collaboration among individuals in two or more LCTLs.


Successful applicants will be required to submit a brief final report
describing how the grant was spent, the results of the project, and a
copy of any product stemming from the project.


Composition of the Screening Committee: The mini-grant screening
committee will be chaired by the Vice President of the Council and
will consist of one Council At-Large representative and one Council
representative selected by the President. The committee will
represent balance among language areas and organizational size.


Deadline: Proposal submissions must be received by July 12, 2002. Each
committee member will rank order the proposals from strongest to
weakest and the vice president will send this ranking to the Executive
Director, who will notify the winning proposals by no later than July
29. The committee is empowered to suggest funding proposals at a
level less than requested.


Address for submissions: Proposals may be submitted via U.S. Mail, fax
or electronic mail to:
