The time commitment’s small, but the outcome can change an entire career! Don’t miss this opportunity to make connections, offer professional guidance, share knowledge and experiences, and build a stronger community.

In the program, seasoned members are matched with those who are newer to the field and are seeking professional guidance. Matches are made based on the results of our short survey, with the goal of optimizing the mentor/mentee partnerships.

Mentors and mentees are matched every six months using the term schedule below. To participate, simply read the code of conduct and fill out the survey. We will connect you to your mentor or mentee at the beginning of the next term. Once you are matched and the term starts, you will receive an email introduction to start connecting right away.

National Research Council’s Indigenous Languages Technology (ILT) RFP project

NRC-new-logo.png

The National Research Council’s Indigenous Languages Technology (ILT) project has a core mandate to develop language technology for Indigenous languages in Canada in collaboration with Indigenous stakeholders.

 The NRC ILT is soliciting proposals to fund projects related to language technology for Indigenous languages spoken in Canada. The funding may be applied to a broad range of projects. Some eligible examples are refining existing technologies for Indigenous languages in Canada, developing new ones, collecting data to support these technologies, and assisting communities in the development of language learning methodologies and assistive technologies.

 It is anticipated that most successful proposals will receive funding in the range $100,000 - $300,000, though proposals of exceptional merit requesting funding outside this range may be considered. The funding period is short: it begins one month after issuance of this request and ends on March 31, 2020.

 Applications must be received by April 31, 2019. 

Proposals will be evaluated by the NRC project team and the Indigenous Advisory Committee on the basis of the criteria described above. Decisions will be sent to applicants by May 20, 2019.

These funding opportunities are supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Native American Scholars Initiative (NASI).
