American Council For Learned
Request for Proposals for Research on Heritage Speakers of East European Languages
Deadline: January 15, 2010
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 15, 2011 and must be completed
before December 31, 2011. The project should culminate in 1) an analytical paper and 2) a proposal for an advancedmastery
course for community of heritage speakers that was studied.
Deadline: January 29, 2010
Amount: $1,000 - $2,500
The American Council of Learned Societies offers travel funding for presentation of papers at scholarly conferences taking
place between June 1, 2010 and December 31, 2011 (up to $1,000 for travel within North America; up to $2,500 for
intercontinental travel). The purpose of these grants is to build the East European field and to encourage comparative
study that includes East European studies.
Topics of papers must be related to Eastern Europe, but applications are welcome from East European specialists proposing
to attend conferences whose general theme lies outside Eastern Europe as well as from scholars whose area expertise
lies outside Eastern Europe who propose to attend an East European-focused event.
Applicants must be a citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Funds may not be used in Western Europe.
Deadline: January 29, 2010
Amount: up to $25,000; up to $12,500 for workshops
The American Council of Learned Societies offers grants of up to $25,000 for conferences and up to $12,500 for workshops
to support events to be held between June 1, 2010 and December 31, 2011. These grants will support academic
conferences and workshops for the presentation and critical evaluation of new research on Eastern Europe.
Conferences should present papers in a formal, academic setting and should be open to the public. Conference papers
should be of publishable quality, pointing new directions for scholarship.
Workshops are conceived as smaller events at which scholars discuss work in progress less formally with the intention
of developing collaborations and planning conferences. A workshop should hold at least one public session such as a
panel of paper presentations, a roundtable, or a lecture with discussion.
Applications must specify a principal organizer who is affiliated with a university or research institution and must hold a
Ph.D. Organizers must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
