Request for Proposals for Research on Heritage Speakers of East European Languages


The information below, from the 2010-11 competition, is for information purposes only and will be updated in the fall.

Grant Details

  • Deadline: January 14, 2011
  • Amount: $20,000

A grant of $20,000 will be made to an individual or collaborative team for a research project on heritage speakers of an East European language in the United States. Heritage speakers constitute an untapped national resource for academic and policy research, but there has been little study of their special needs for bringing their linguistic skills up to a professional level. The project receiving the grant must report preliminary results by January 16, 2012 and must be completed before December 28, 2012. The project should culminate in an analytical paper and a proposal for an advanced-mastery course for community of heritage speakers that was studied.
