Funding for research that supports research into linguistic issues.
The Sociological Initiatives Foundation provides grants of $10,000 to
$20,000 to support research that supports social change.
The Foundation specifically supports research that focuses on:
- Clear social policy objectives
- Institutional and educational practices
- Legislative and regulatory changes
- Organizing previously unorganized groups
- Building collective community capacity and/or power (such as expanding
- Linguistic issues, such as literacy, language maintenance and expansion,
multilingualism and its implications, and their possible intersection with
social and policy issues.
The Foundation supports projects that address institutional rather than
individual or behavioral change and/or research and initiatives that
provide insight into sociological and linguistic issues that may be useful
to specific groups and or communities.
It supports projects that have an explicit research design and a concrete
connection to public or community impact. The research should ideally build
an organization or constituency's potential to expand public knowledge,
impact policy, and create social change. Complete guidelines and on-line
concept application for the August 15, 2008 deadline are
available at http://comm-org.wisc.edu/sif .
