The Esperantic Studies Foundation offers Interlingual Research Grants of up to $10,000 to support publishable research on issues it considers to be relevant to its mission. This program is particularly designed to benefit postdoctoral researchers and junior faculty who are in the process of establishing a research program, although anyone may apply.
All individuals and organizations are eligible to apply for Interlingual Research Grants. ESF particularly welcomes applications from graduate students planning dissertation research and from untenured faculty members
You may apply at any time. Before applying, you may contact any officer of ESF to discuss your plans and ideas. When ready to apply, send us a written statement describing:
If we offer an Interlingual Research Grant to you, we shall divide the grant amount into installments to be paid during your research period and after submission of your final report. Typically, we offer to pay installments totaling two-thirds of the grant during the research period and a final installment of one-third of the grant within one month after you submit a final report satisfactory to us.
Recipients of Interlingual Research Grants may also be invited to participate in occasional ESF meetings or conferences.
Send completed applications to our administrative office c/o the information provided on our Contact page.
This fund was established under the leadership of Dr. Detlev Blanke (Germany) to support small grants for Interlinguistic-related publications, conferences, and similar activities.
