CoLang 2014: the Institute on Collaborative Language Research (http://tinyurl.com/colang2014) will be hosted this year by The University of Texas at Arlington from June 16 – 27, 2014, with the optional field methods/practicum courses running June 30 – July 25, 2014. CoLang 2014 is an internationally-recognized language documentation and revitalization institute, offering a major opportunity to work to stem the tide of language shift and endangerment, and to increase documentation on the world's underdocumented languages. We offer a series of workshops that train a wide variety of audiences in a large and diverse set of skills in community-centered language documentation and revitalization. Our instructors come from the international community of indigenous and academic experts to provide state-of-the-art, intensive training. CoLang brings in experts not only from the United States, Canada and Mexico, but also from Africa, Australia, and Asia, thereby offering a tremendous range of expertise in the kinds of challenges facing endangered language communities, and the responses communities and linguists adopt in different contexts. Participants include undergraduate and graduate students, practicing linguists, and members of indigenous communities. Participants with no or little linguistic background are welcome, and there are workshops that introduce linguistics.

The online scholarship application for CoLang 2014 internal scholarships is available: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PLK3N63
We require a letter of recommendation to be submitted separately via email.
