CHamoru Language and Culture Researcher Training Program open to applicants
The University of Guam is accepting applications for its CHamoru Language and Culture Researcher Training Program.
Funded by an Administration for Native Americans (ANA) grant, the goal is to train eligible members of the local workforce to document the CHamoru language and culture through collecting, analyzing, and piecing together CHamoru knowledge in Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
Twenty will be chosen to participate in the two-year program that will provide training in language and cultural documentation, interviewing, historical document analysis, translation, transcription, and how to apply what they will learn toward CHamoru language revitalization.
During the first year, program participants will take a total of six University of Guam courses under the CHamoru Studies and Education programs. The tuition for the courses will be entirely paid for by the grant and will be at no cost to the chosen program participants. In addition to the courses, the curriculum will include various workshops and webinars.
In the second year, participants will have the opportunity to apply their training by carrying out their own language and/or culture documentation projects under the supervision of the grant’s research associates.
The program is looking for applicants who:
Applications received by 5 p.m. on May 23, 2023, will be given priority.
