(From Colleen Fitzgerald, NSF DEL P.D.)
The Documenting Endangered Languages (DEL) program has a new solicitation NSF 16-617, Documenting Endangered Languages – Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DEL-DDRIG). Proposals may be submitted anytime to this solicitation; doctoral students are limited to two DDRIG submissions over the course of their graduate careers.
Eligibility for the DEL-DDRIG solicitation 16-617 is limited to doctoral students who are enrolled at Ph.D. granting universities and colleges accredited in, and having a campus located in the US acting on behalf of their faculty members. DEL DDRIG proposals must be submitted with a faculty member (generally the advisor) as the principal investigator (PI) and the doctoral student as the co-principal investigator (Co-PI).
DDRIGs recommended by the DEL Program will not exceed $15,000 in allowable direct costs over the duration of the award. Indirect costs are in addition to this maximum direct cost limitation and are subject to the awardee’s current Federally negotiated indirect cost rate. Project budgets should be developed at scales appropriate for the work to be conducted and may only include costs directly associated with the conduct of dissertation research. DEL DDRIGs cannot reimburse the costs of a stipend or salary for the doctoral student or advisor.
