Betreff: FEL Call for Proposals for 2003

The Foundation for Endangered Languages is now accepting proposals
for  projects of work that will support, enable or assist the
documentation,  protection or promotion of one or more endangered

Please pass on this announcement to your friends and colleagues in
endangered  language communities who may not have access to Ogmios,
the Internet or e-mail.

Form for Submissions
There is a form that defines the content of appropriate proposals,
which is accessible at the Foundation's website:
It may also be obtained from
Blair A. Rudes, Department of English,
Univ. North Carolina at Charlotte,
9201 University City Boulevard, Charlotte, North Carolina 28223-0001, USA.
fax +1-704-687-3961.
<BARudes at email.uncc.edu>

All proposals must be submitted in this form, to ensure comparability.

The time-limit for proposals in the current round will be 31 January
2003.  By that date, proposals and supporting  testimonials must
reach Blair A. Rudes, at the address specified in the form.

The FEL Committee will announce its decision before the 31st of March 2003.

Three points to note especially.  The second is new to this call.

1. The Foundation's funds are extremely limited and it is not anticipated
that any award will be greater than US $1,000. Smaller proposals stand a
better chance of funding.
2. Where possible, work undertaken within endangered language
communities themselves will be preferred.
3. The Foundation for Endangered Languages (FEL) is a separate from
ELF, the Endangered Language Fund (www.haskins.yale.edu), whose
current call for proposals can be found in this same issue of Ogmios.
It is perfectly  possible (and has indeed occurred in the past) that
the same project can beå partially funded by both FEL and ELF.
