In this announcement, released yesterday, the dates should of course
refer to the near future, not past years. Specificially:

** Deadline:
The time-limit for proposals will be 30 January 2005. By that date, full
proposals (consisting of Case for Support and Application Form) must
reach me at the address below. All proposals received will be
acknowledged on receipt.

The FEL Committee will announce its decision by 31st March 2005.

** Comments on Draft Proposals:
FEL tries to keep its procedures as simple as possible. But it
recognizes that they may be especially taxing for those without training
in a western university. In the case of proposals from communities or
community linguists, FEL is prepared to comment on drafts, and suggest
weaknesses and potential remedies (without prejudice) before the
selection. Such draft proposals - clearly marked "DRAFT" - should reach
FEL as soon as possible, and no later than 31 December 2004.
