Dear Colleagues,

I wanted to draw your attention to this funding opportunity at the ELDP to
digitize legacy fieldwork data.

------------ Forwarded message ----------
Dear Colleagues

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

We would also be grateful if you could circulate the information to anyone
you think may be interested in applying for a grant.

Many thanks,

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.

If you have any questions please get in touch with us at eldp at soas.ac.uk.
