Description:The Endangered Language Fund provides grants for language documentation and revitalization, and linguistic fieldwork. The work most likely to be funded is that which serves both the native community and the field of linguistics. Work that has immediate applicability to one group and more distant application to the other is also considered. Proposals may originate in any country. The language involved must be in danger of disappearing within one or two generations. Endangerment is a continuum, and the location on the continuum is one factor in the funding decisions. Eligible expenses include consultant fees, equipment, and travel.

Eligible applicants are researchers and language activists from any country. Awards may be made to academic institutions, but no overhead costs are covered. Before receiving any funds, university-based applicants must show that they have met the requirements of their university's human subjects' committee. Applications must be submitted by email; applications by fax or postal mail are not accepted.
Eligibility:Private, Public, Other (including homeschool, 501 (c)(3) organizations)
