Apologies for cross-posting

The Endangered Language Fund has opened up grant applications for 2014. Information about applications below, with further information on their website: http://endangeredlanguagefund.org/request.php

The ELF provides grants for language maintenance and linguistic field work. The work most likely to be funded is that which serves both the native community and the field of linguistics. Work which has immediate applicability to one group and more distant application to the other will also be considered. Publishing subventions  are a low priority, although they will be considered. Proposals can originate in any country. The language involved must be in danger of disappearing within a generation or two. Endangerment is a continuum, and the location on the continuum is one factor in our funding decisions.
Eligible expenses include consultant fees, tapes, films, travel, etc. Overhead is not allowed. Grants are normally for a one year period, though extensions may be applied for. We expect grants in this round to be less than $4,000 in size, and to average about $2,000.

Researchers and language activists from any country are eligible to apply. Awards can be made to institutions, but no administrative (overhead, indirect) costs are covered.
Please note that many languages in the northwestern United States of America are NOT eligible for the Language Legacies grant. These languages are covered instead by our Native Voices Endowment grant program (click here for more details). The full list of languages that are covered by the Native Voices Endowment and ineligible for the Language Legacies grant may be found in PDF form here.

Applications must be received by April 22nd, 2014. Decisions will be delivered by the end of May, 2014.
