The Richard Guidry Cajun and Creole Language Fund announced its acceptance of grant proposals that foster or extend the growth of the French language in public discourse, the arts or education. There are two grants available for up to $325.00 each, which request funding for classroom projects, research, cultural activities and media projects that use spoken French in the wider community. The deadline for application is April 15, 2013.
The grants awarded will depend upon the quality of the proposals and their adherence to the fund's mission. More grants may be awarded if enough finalists have not asked for the maximum amount. The fund's mission is to grow the use of spoken Cajun and Creole as much as possible.
Applications can be downloaded on the Community Foundation of Acadiana website under the Richard Guidry Cajun and Creole Language Fund at http://www.cfacadiana.org/formsfunds or for more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
