Subject: FYI: Endangered Language Fund Grants

 The Endangered Language Fund would like to remind readers of the
list that the deadline for applying for grants in this year's cycle is
APRIL 20th, 1998. These grants, supported entirely by the generosity
of our members, support language maintenance and field research on
endangered languages.
 All of the information needed to submit a grant is included below.
If there are other questions, please write us at:

Doug Whalen DhW, President, ELF

		Request for Proposals, 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 the native community and the field of
linguistics immediately. 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. 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
 Eligible expenses include travel, tapes, films, consultant
fees, etc. Grants are normally for one year periods, though
extensions may be applied for. We expect grants in this round to be
less than $2,000 in size.


 There is no form, but the information requested below should
be printed (on one side only) and four copies sent to:
 Endangered Language Fund, Inc.
 Department of Linguistics
 320 York Street
 Yale University
 New Haven, CT 06520

Applications must be mailed in. No e-mail or fax applications will be

If you have any questions, please write to the same address or email

 Please provide the following information for the primary
researcher (and other researchers, if any): Name, address, telephone
numbers, email address (if any), Social Security number (if
U.S. citizen), place and date of birth, present position, education,
and native language. State previous experience and/or publications
that are relevant.
 Beginning on a separate page, please provide a description of
the project. This should normally take less than two pages, single
spaced. 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.
 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.
 Two letters of support are recommended, but not required. Note
that these letters must arrive on or before the deadline in order to
be considered. If more than two letters are sent, only the first two
received will be read.


 A researcher can be primary investigator on only one proposal.


 Applications must be received by APRIL 20th, 1998. Decisions
will be delivered by the end of May, 1998.


 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.


 Before receiving any funds, university-based applicants must
show that they have met with their university's human subjects'
committee requirements. 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 publications
resulting from materials obtained with the assistance of the grant.
