Subject: ELDP Legacy Material Grants: Call for Expressions of Interest
From: 	ELDP <eldp at soas.ac.uk>
Deadline: 15 January 2017

The Endangered Languages Documentation Programme (ELDP) is pleased to announce 
a call for expressions of interest for a new grant type: Legacy Material Grants.

ELDP Legacy Material Grants are offered to support the digitisation and 
archiving of legacy materials which are a rich resource for the documentation 
of the world’s linguistic diversity and are in danger of being lost: 
recordings of endangered or moribund languages in analogue format which are 
not part of an existing repository. The collections that are the target of 
these grants are in private hands or in small repositories without any access 
to resources for digitisation. The collections may include audio and video 
recordings (e.g., on tapes or reel to reel and so on), field notes, text 
collections and photographs. Typically, these data were collected without an 
archiving plan in place, and are in or about languages which are endangered or 
no longer spoken. Legacy Material Grant projects may develop existing data 
collections in a variety of ways with a view to making them accessible and 
discoverable, but the primary focus must be on safeguarding and preserving 
legacy materials through digitisation and archiving.

The maximum grant is £10,000. Legacy Grant projects last from 6 to 12 months. 
Projects can only be funded if the materials can be made openly accessible at 
the Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR).

Legacy Material Grants are assessed via a two-stage process: Stage 1 is a 
submission of an Expression of Interest (EoI). Stage 2 is an invited full 
application. The full application should be an elaboration of the EoI 
application. Significant changes in the stated intention, aims or objectives 
of the research are not permitted. The total budget requested in the full 
application should be the same as that provided in the EoI.
