Indigenous Education, Culture, and Language
The Genographic Legacy Fund aims to empower indigenous and traditional
peoples on a local level while helping to raise awareness on a global level
of the challenges and pressures facing these communities. Support from the
fund will be directed primarily toward education initiatives, cultural
conservation, and linguistic preservation and revitalization efforts.
Applicants must provide a record of current or prior work in support of
indigenous education programs and/or cultural or linguistic conservation
efforts. The majority of the group responsible for project governance must
be members of the indigenous community in which the project will be
implemented. Projects are divided into two categories: 1) smaller, discrete
projects that typically require amounts up to $25,000 and 2) more complex
projects undertaken in conjunction with other entities, such as NGOs, local
education institutions, or government agencies, that require up to $100,000.
DEADLINES: June 15 and December 15, 2007
