Documenting Endangered Languages Fellowships 2018

April 9, 2018 | By NEH Staff

The Documenting Endangered Languages (DEL) program is an interdisciplinary partnership between the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to develop and advance knowledge concerning endangered human languages, made urgent by the imminent death of roughly half of the approximately 7,000 currently used languages. Funding can support fieldwork and other activities relevant to the digital recording, documenting, and archiving of endangered languages, including the preparation of lexicons, grammars, text samples, and databases.
