The Endangered Language Fund (ELF), a non-profit organization dedicated to the documentation and revitalization of endangered languages, has an opportunity for an unpaid internship at our New Haven, Connecticut, office. The timeframe is open-ended, but we are most interested in someone who could make a commitment for a year (start date between June and mid-August). Duties would include updating the ELF website, working on our newsletter, tracking progress of grants, maintaining the ELF Facebook page, and a variety of other tasks. We would be especially interested in someone with good social media skills. This is a great opportunity to learn about language documentation and revitalization, as well as non-profit management. It is also a good way to explore possibilities for graduate school and network with other linguists. Hours are flexible; previous interns have had outside paying jobs as well as volunteering, but the intern should spend 10-20 hours per week in the ELF office in New Haven.

Application Deadline: 15-Aug-2016
