Indigenous Language Scholarship Support Fund

This fund will be used to provide support enabling indigenous scholars to present and participate in the conference. It will facilitate presentation of papers, posters and roundtables on Indigenous languages. The funding is intended for scholars presenting on Indigenous languages who have very limited or no access to funding. Priority will be given to community-based language experts.

A maximum of $5,000 per year will be budgeted to support these scholars.
