The 2021 NVE Call for Proposals is open, and will close on October 1, 2021.
You can view the Request guidelines & instructions here.
Important Note: NVE Proposals are now submitted through our online submissions portal. Emailed proposals are no longer accepted. Please visit the guidelines page for more information.

ELF provides grants for eligible tribes and languages through the Native Voices Endowment: A Lewis & Clark Expedition Bicentennial Legacy. These funds come from the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Council, which received the revenues from the U.S. Mint's sale of the Lewis and Clark 2004 Commemorative Coin. Grants through this program are available to members of the Native American tribes that came in contact with the Lewis and Clark Expedition between 1803-1806.

Grants are available for work on documentation and revitalization of the languages of these tribes (see below for list of eligible tribes and languages). Applicants (Principal Investigators) must be enrolled tribal members or employees of tribal colleges. Scholarships for academic work in linguistics or a Native language, or for Master/Apprentice programs are also available for tribal members.
