Grant types

Small Grants (SG)
Small grants are a new category and replace the previous field trip grants
and pilot projects. They can be used for a range of purposes related to the
documentation of endangered languages, such as to carry out fieldwork,
develop a pilot project, or complete a project already begun. The maximum
grant awarded will be Ł10,000.

Individual Graduate Scholarships (IGS)
IGS applications are invited from individuals seeking scholarship funding
for up to 3 years. Individual Graduate Scholarship projects last for 12 to
36 months; field trips are normally involved. In addition to field trip
costs, you may apply for a stipend to cover the period while undertaking
field research and processing the results. A stipend provides funding to
cover direct living costs and is not a salary; as such, employment-based
taxes should not be claimed.
      If you already hold an existing ELDP IGS you may apply for a
supplement for up to 12 months of further support (use the separate
application form).

Major Documentation Project (MDP)
MDP funding can cover elements including fieldwork costs, equipment,
researchers' salaries, and graduate students' stipends (stipends should be
included only for activities contributing to the project while in the field
or processing the documentation materials). Project duration is from 6 to
36 months. Funding for these projects typically ranges from less than
40,000 pounds up to the maximum of 150,000 pounds. We encourage you to
submit quality proposals that provide value for money and are clearly

Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship (IPF)
IPF grantees are typically researchers at an early stage in their academic
career (e.g. who have held a PhD less than 5 years), with qualifications in
linguistics and experience in linguistic fieldwork. IPFs are available for
between between 12 and 24 months.

Training Activity Grants (TAG)
Opening of applications for Training Activity Grants is postponed, as ELDP
is still formulating the details of these new grants. Updated information
will be available here in June 2009. We hope to open applications around
mid 2009 so that awards can be taken up in 2010.
