DE-ILR Micro-Grants for Materials available

May 12, 2021

The Designated Emphasis in Indigenous Language Revitalization invites applications for a new grant program that offers up to $250 to cover the cost of developing language materials for revitalization efforts. Grants will be awarded three times a year. The program is reimbursement-based; grantees must provide receipts and documentation for expenses up to the award amount.

This new grant program is open to all Berkeley students (undergraduate and graduate) who are working in language revitalization and seek reimbursement-based support up to $250 for teaching and other revitalization materials, with priority for funding to members of the Designated Emphasis in Indigenous Language Revitalization. Examples of eligible costs include photocopies, flashcards, art materials, books, games, digital tools, and other items used in language activities.

Funds can be requested for expenses from Jan. 2020 onward. Applications are due on May 21, 2021 for this first round.
