Endangered Language Fund

Posted by Endangered Language Fund on March 9, 2015

The Endangered Language Fund was founded in 1996 with the goal of supporting language preservation and documentation projects. To that end, ELF provides grants for language maintenance and linguistic fieldwork related to languages in danger of disappearing within a generation or two.

Priority is given to projects that serve both the native community and the field of linguistics. In addition, work that has immediate applicability to one group and more distant application to the other [e1] will also be considered. Publishing subventions are a low priority, although they will be considered.

ELF expects grants in this round to be less than $4,000 each, and to average about $2,000. Funds can be applied to consultant fees, tapes, films, travel, etc., with the exception of overhead. Grants are for one year, but follow-on funding is possible.

Researchers and language activists from any country are eligible to apply, and grantees may be individuals or institutions.
