International Translators Grants from Etxepare Basque Institute
The Etxepare Basque Institute has announced that the application period is now open for its International Translators grants. The goal of these is to broaden the horizons of Basque literature by recruiting foreign literature translators to learn Basque in order to eventually translate Basque works into their mother tongues. Eight grants will be awarded, four to non-Basque speakers and another four to individuals with some knowledge of Basque. Grants will allow non-Basque speakers to stay in the Basque Country for six months to acquire a certain knowledge of the language, while folks with some Basque already, will get to spend a month in the Basque Country to improve their level. For more information in English visit here. Deadline to apply is May 16.
