Our Language Grant Deadline Extended
New deadline: Proposals due May 1
In light of recent developments in communities across Alaska, the country and the world, Doyon Foundation is extending the application deadline for the 2020 Our Language grants until Friday, May 1, 2020, at 5 p.m. The final report deadline was also extended from September 30 to October 30, 2020.
The Foundation understands that many are making preparations to protect families and loved ones, while also facing new challenges of working remotely and finding new ways to stay connected. The deadline extension is intended to allow applicants the additional time they need to develop their project ideas and grant proposals.
Doyon Foundation will award grants of up to $5,000 to support language revitalization efforts as part of its continuing effort to revitalize the endangered Native languages of the Doyon region. The 10 ancestral languages of the Doyon region are all severely to critically endangered, and will be lost within the span of a few generations if no action is taken.
Doyon region tribal governments/tribal councils/communities; nonprofit Alaska Native organizations, societies, and community groups; and Alaska Native cultural, educational, and recreational organizations/centers are eligible to apply for an Our Language grant.
