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.
