AILLA Requirements

  1. Contact the AILLA Manager, at least one month before your grant due date and send her the following information:
    • Title of your project,
    • The names of the indigenous languages,
    • The complete names of all (Co-)PIs,
    • A draft of the Data Management Plan (DMP),
    • The name of the grant you are applying for, including if it is a Senior grant, a Fellowship, or a Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant (DDRIG), and
    • The link to the call for proposals for the grant.
  2. If you are required to submit a budget as part of your Senior grant or DDRIG, please plan to include a service fee of 8% of the direct costs (excluding salaries for Senior Personnel and Graduate Assistants) in your budget to defray the costs associated with curating, ingesting, and permanently storing your collection at AILLA. Please contact the AILLA manager with questions.
  3. Once you know the status of your grant application (approved or denied), you must send this information to the AILLA Manager for planning purposes. If your grant is approved, please contact AILLA regarding your time line so that the AILLA staff can plan the AILLA deposit queue accordingly.

  • The DMPTool provides DMP requirements and templates for several specific funding agencies and programs.
  • The University of Pittsburgh has detailed information about writing a Data Management Plan, as well as sample DMPs here.
  • The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) also has helpful information about Data Management Plans here.
  • This is a sample DMP that gives suggestions for key elements to include.
