The Documenting Endangered Languages (DEL) program is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop and advance knowledge concerning endangered human languages. Made urgent by the imminent death of an estimated half of the 6,000-7,000 currently used languages, this effort aims also to exploit advances in information technology. Awards support fieldwork and other activities relevant to recording, documenting, and archiving endangered languages, including the preparation of lexicons, grammars, text samples, and databases.
Applications are submitted to NSF for review. Upon completion of the review process, the administration of awards is conducted separately by NEH or NSF.
When available, the DEL notice of funding opportunity and instructions will be available on the National Science Foundation’s website.
For projects involving individual fellowships, project directors should consider applying for a Fellowship through the DLI-DEL program offered by NSF in collaboration with NEH’s Division of Research.
