In order to help stem this linguistic and cultural crisis, the Henry Luce Foundation has awarded $160,000 to the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa Department of Linguistics in the College of Arts and Sciences for research on endangered languages in China and mainland Southeast Asia for the Catalogue of Endangered Languages (ELCat).
