These support postdoctoral researchers undertaking research in the field of endangered languages. The objectives of the fellowship are to:

  • support the documentation of as many endangered languages as possible;
  • encourage fieldwork on endangered languages;
  • create a repository of language resources for linguistic, social sciences, and the language communities.

Principal investigators of any nationality at an early stage of their academic career, may apply for individual or team projects. They must be within five years of obtaining their PhD degree, have qualifications in linguistics and experience in linguistic fieldwork. Recipients must hold their fellowship at an institution other than the institution where their PhD was awarded. For team-based research, the primary grantee is the PI.

The fellowship is worth up to £150,000 and for a duration of up to two years, covering the salary costs, technical staff, consultants, equipment, travel and subsistence.
