Indigenous Scholar Scheme
The Scheme funds Indigenous language experts to work on a small project of their design with the support of a RUIL team member. Depending on the nature of the project, RUIL can provide relevant training, collaborative support, library access and relevant resources. Applicants can apply for up to $5000, which can be used to fund such things as travel, salary buyout to enable time to work on the project, research assistance costs, publication costs, etc.
