It’s not too late to enter this year’s Multilingual Matters Award for Multilingualism in the Community. We set up this award of £2000 to promote multilingualism in families, schools and communities. Any group or individual running a project involving multilingualism is eligible to apply for the award as long as they have not already been awarded funding from another source. The project can be anything: a website, a Saturday school, a playgroup, or something else entirely, and can be based anywhere in the world. The only conditions are that your proposal must primarily be about languages and language use and that the money must be used for community projects and not to fund academic research.
All you need to do is fill out the entry form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 October 2012 with ‘Multilingualism in the Community Award’ in the subject line. If you have any questions about the award please get in touch at email@example.com. We look forward to receiving your entry!
