 	New Guidelines and Application Instructions for the July 1, 2002
 National Endowment for the Humanities
 Division of Preservation and Access

 	The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH  http://www.neh.gov )
 is a grant-making agency of the U.S. federal government that supports
 projects in the humanities. Eligible applicants are: U.S. nonprofit
 associations, institutions, and organizations, as well as U.S.
citizens and foreign nationals who have been legal residents in the United
States for a period of at least the three years immediately preceding the
 submission of the application.

 	NEH's Division of Preservation and Access supports projects that
 preserve and make available the full range of humanities collections
that are important for research, education, and lifelong learning.
Projects may encompass collections of books, journals, newspapers, manuscript and
 archival materials, maps, still and moving images, sound recordings,
and objects of material culture held by libraries, archives, museums,
 historical organizations, and other repositories. Grants are also
given for the creation of research tools and reference works (such as
 dictionaries, encyclopedias, and databases), for national and
regional preservation training programs, and for research and demonstration
 projects that may explore the use of digital technology.

 	Prospective applicants seeking further information are encouraged to
 contact the division's staff (at 202-606-8570 or at preservation at neh.gov).
 The staff will also continue to read draft proposals that are
submitted six weeks before the deadline. Final decisions for applications
submitted to the JULY 1, 2002 deadline will be announced the following April.

Dear Colleagues,

You may be interested in the following two items from the Directorate
of the Instituto Nacional de Linguística (INL) at the National
University of East Timor.

As from 20 May 2002 (Independence Day) all foreign scholars wishing
to undertake field work in East Timor will require an official permit
issued by the INL. The assessment process for applications will
consider the extent to which proposed language research and
development projects fit in with the general aims of the government
of the Democratic
Republic of East Timor, and specifically Clause 12 of the
Constitution, which defines Tetum and Portuguese as the official
languages of the state and indicates the government's commitment to
fostering and developing the other 'national' (i.e. indigenous)

The INL Directorate would be most grateful if you would bring this
important document to the attention of the research office and ethics
committee of your university or research institute to ensure that all
language-oriented work on East Timor conducted by your institution is
in conformity with the laws of the Democratic Republic of East Timor.

For an electronic copy of the document "Language and Linguistics
Research in East Timor: Government Research Permit Application
Information", please contact the INL Director of Research and
Publications, Dr Geoffrey Hull <g.hull at uws.edu.au>

The original Portuguese text of the document is also available on request.

The INL is about to publish electronically its first research bulletin.

Research Bulletin #1 (April 2002) will describe the INL-approved
ongoing research work on languages of East Timor begun during the
first year of the Institute's operation.

Please let me know if you would like to subscribe to this bulletin,
posted twice yearly (April and October) as an electronic attachment,
and I will add your e-mail address to the list.
