Description

The strategic vision behind the Telugu Initiative is to create a world-class center for the study of Telugu language and culture at the University of California, Berkeley. The ambition is to create an environment in which research and teaching in Telugu can be performed at a level comparable to the level currently enjoyed by Sanskrit and Tamil at UC Berkeley. 
Goals 

1. To help establish a chair for Telugu Studies (language instruction and research on culture) at the University of California, Berkeley.
2. To help create on-line Telugu instructional material for learning Telugu as a second language
3. To help create a one-stop web site for Telugu resources and reference materials such as dictionaries, grammar books, and so on.
4. To help children learn Telugu using modern electronic media 


Status So far we raised $350,000 and instruction began in Fall 2007 at UC Berkeley Our immediate goal is to raise $1.5 million toward a corpus fund at UC Berkeley. The interest on this fund will be used to hire a permanent lecturer to teach Telugu to students at UC Berkeley and to promote interaction with Telugu-teaching universities and colleges in India. Our long-term goal is to raise $5 million corpus to support a permanent professor to conduct research and supervise research in Telugu Studies.
