      Endangered Languages Documentation Programme
      Advance Notice: 2003 Call for Proposals

      With the first round of the ELDP application process completed and offers of
      grants made, we propose to move straight on the the second call for
      Preliminary Applications. The purpose of this e-mail is to outline the
      timetable and the key structural changes to the programme. It should be
      noted that the timetable has been brought forward when compared with that of
      2002.

      2002 Outcomes
      The ELDP received approximately 150 applications in response to its first
      call for applications. About 40 of these were invited to submit detailed
      applications, and although it was not possible to offer financial support to
      all good proposals, the Fund was able to make formal offers of grants to 21
      applicants: Studentships, Fellowships and Project grants. Details of the
      offers, and subsequently details of those accepted, will be publicised on
      the ELDP web page shortly (www.eldp.soas.ac.uk).

      2003 Timetable

      16th May 2003 - Revised guidelines and forms available on the web page.

      8th August 2003 - Deadline for submission of Preliminary Applications.

      19th September 2003 - Invitations to submit Detailed Applications
      dispatched.

      14th November 2003 - Deadline for submission of Detailed Applications.

      27th February 2004 - Announcement of Funding Awards.

      The timetable will be repeated annually.


      2003 Guidance
      The new guidelines and application forms for the 2003 funding round will be
      published on the website by Friday 26th May 2003. In the meantime, the 2002
      guidelines may be used as a general guide. The five types of application
      used in 2002 will remain, although additional guidelindes as to funding
      limits will be provided.

      The main aims of the Fund remain the documentation of seriously endangered
      languages and the criteria remain (a) endangerment, (b) significance of the
      language and (c) quality of proposal. The Fund's primary concern is with
      documentation rather than focused revitalisation - although the link is
      appreciated and sometimes desirable. As such prospective applicants should
      structure the documentation in such a way as to assist local communities in
      preserving and fostering highly endangered ancestral languages and speech
      ways.

      Whilst in essence the guidelines will remain broadly similar, there will be
      a number of budgetary refinements. Key changes that you may wish to note
      will be as follows:

      - Overhead/ Institutional Administration costs will not be eligible.

      - Top-up salaries for established/ employed academics will not be eligible
      (this includes the funding of non-institutional funded summer vacation
      periods).

      - A limit of £2000 (pounds sterling) may be requested for publications.

      - Major equipment costs (i.e. laptops, camcorders etc) will not be provided
      for projects where the period of fieldwork is limited.

      - Modest training activity for local communities (within the context of a
      substantive project) will be eligible for support.
