Endangered Languages Documentation Programme (ELDP): Small Grants (SG) 2017

The Endangered Languages Documentation Programme (ELDP) is one of three programmes which make up the Hans Rausing Endangered Languages Project (HRELP).

The key objectives of ELDP are:

  • to support the documentation of as many endangered languages as possible,
  • to encourage fieldwork on endangered languages, especially by scholars at an early stage in their academic career with skills in language documentation, and
  • to create a repository of language resources for linguistics, social sciences, and the language communities.

Small Grants are available to support a variety of documentation activities for endangered languages.


The maximum grant is £10,000 (approx AUD $16,000). Small Grants can be used for a range of purposes, such as to carry out fieldwork, develop a pilot project, complete a project already begun, or other documentation-related goals.


ELDP welcomes applications from language documenters of any nationality to undertake projects in any part of the world. Applicants are normally expected to have experience in language documentation work, fieldwork, and/or a suitable academic background. However, as the purpose of Small Grants is to encourage innovation, any individual or group with a keen interest in documenting an endangered language is eligible to apply.
