Greetings Learned Colleagues
Lacuna Fund just launched its most recent call for proposals focused on language datasets in sub-Saharan Africa. This call will be administered in two stages, with the first stage calling for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) and the second stage inviting selected teams to submit full proposals. See the full announcement, with more details on eligibility and selection, here.
The Fund is the world’s first collaborative effort to provide data scientists, researchers, and social entrepreneurs in low- and middle-income contexts globally with the resources they need to produce training and evaluation datasets that address urgent problems in their communities.
