In the 2020-21 round we awarded 7 new grants for a total of US$6,600.

FEL is committed to raising awareness of endangered languages throughout the world and supporting their revitalisation and preservation. Each year, we award grants to projects that further these aims.

Members of FEL with a current subscription of any type may apply in future grant rounds. If you are not yet a member then please join before applying (see our Membership page). Priority is given to projects that focus on the revitalisation of an endangered language and/or support the use of an endangered language in its community. In general, we award up to US $1,000 for successful proposals. Proposals for smaller amounts may have a better chance of receiving funding.

See our reports page with details of over 40 projects we have supported.
