ELDP provides grants for the documentation of endangered languages. Please visit our project pages and our ELAR archive pages for the types of projects we have funded. Applications must be submitted online.

Note to previous grantees and current grant holders

If you and/or your project participants currently hold a grant with us or have held a grant with us before, you need to ensure that the documentation materials from your and/or your project participants' grants have been deposited at ELAR.

The quality of your deposit and your track record with ELAR and ELDP will form part of the evaluation of your current application. ELDP will not make a formal offer until other projects supported by us have been completed with a deposited collection which is evaluated satisfactorily by the panel. Contact us ( about the status of your and/or your project participants’ deposit of the previous or current grant, or if you have any further questions regarding this regulation.
