The Endangered Archives Programme (EAP) seeks to preserve cultural heritage and make it available to as wide an audience as possible. To achieve this we provide grants to applicants to digitise and document archives. The material can date from any time before the middle of the twentieth century, though archives that cross over to some extent into the second half of the twentieth century may be accepted if the majority of the material is earlier.
Since 2004, the Programme has digitised over seven million images and 25 thousand sound tracks. Explore the EAP archives >
The goal of the Endangered Language Documentation Programme (ELDP) is to preserve endangered languages globally. Since 2002, ELDP has provided funding for linguistic documentation projects led by individuals such as linguists, linguistic anthropologists and community members with skills in linguistic documentation. The project funds individuals to conduct fieldwork, to create multimedia collections, or to digitize linguistic legacy collections of endangered languages on analogue media. Explore the projects ELDP has funded since 2002 here. Explore the funding types and guidelines for documentation projects here and for the digitization of legacy materials collections of endangered languages here.

The Endangered Material Knowledge Programme helps to preserve the knowledge of endangered material practices for future generations by providing grants that record disappearing traditional knowledge and crafts of communities around the globe.
