>Dear Colleagues,
>As you may already know, the Volkswagen-Stiftung (Volkswagen Foundation)
>has recently announced a new program on the documentation of endangered
>languages and is soliciting applications for project grants. Information on
>the program is available on the internet (so far apparently in German) at
>the address http://www.volkswagen-stiftung.de/infotext/infodoku.htm. The
>responsible person at the VW-Stiftung is Dr. Vera SzÂllÂssi-Brenig, e-mail
><szoeloessi at volkswagen-stiftung.de>.
>The main reason for this message is to draw your attention to one point in
>the announcement, in the first paragraph of section VII. Here it is said
>that applications from abroad are treated equally with those from Germany,
>but that applicants from abroad are expected to develop institutional
>cooperation with individual scientists or scientific institutions in
>Germany. The Department of Linguistics of the Max Planck Institute for
>Evolutionary Anthropology, which has the documentation of endangered
>languages as one of its areas, would be happy to consider cooperation with
>applicants from outside Germany who are seeking such a link. I would be
>grateful if you could make this information known to your
>With best wishes,
