Oregon Humanities Conversation Project

Oregon Humanities is seeking scholars, artists, community leaders, innovators, provocateurs, and other engaged thinkers to be leaders for the Conversation Project, a program that offers Oregon nonprofits free, humanities-based public discussion programs about provocative issues and ideas. Conversation Project discussions are led by humanities experts who receive conversation facilitator training from Oregon Humanities. These conversation leaders connect a particular subject to participants’ experiences and to the local community, and model critical thinking without advocating a particular political agenda.

Conversation leaders receive a $200 honorarium, as well as mileage reimbursement and a meal stipend, for each approved program. Leaders must be residents of Oregon. Conversation Project programs will be available from November 1, 2013, through October 31, 2015. Proposals are due March 8, 2013.

Amount: $200

Due date: March 8, 2013

The program, which issues awards for articles, blogs, books, new and alternative media, and short-form writing, aims to support the broad spectrum of writing on contemporary visual art, from general-audience criticism to academic scholarship.

Amount: $3,000 - $50,000

Endangered Language Fund

The Endangered Language Fund provides grants for language maintenance and linguistic field work.

The work most likely to be funded is that which serves both a native community and the field of linguistics. Work that has immediate applicability to one group and more distant application to the field also will be considered. Publishing subventions are a low priority but 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 language's location on the continuum is one factor in ELF's funding decisions.

Amount: $2,000

Date due: April 20, 2012
