We are pleased to announce a Graduate Research Fellowship in ASL Linguistics in conjunction with the American Sign Language Linguistic Research Project and the National Center for Sign Language and Gesture Resources, funded by the National Science Foundation. The fellow, who must be a native or near-native ASL signer, will assist with the elicitation, transcription, and analysis of ASL data.
The fellowship, which provides full tuition plus a stipend, is for academic year 2011-12 and is potentially renewable for up to two more years.
The recipient of this fellowship will be a student enrolled in a graduate program at Boston University (e.g., the interdisciplinary M.A. or Ph.D. Program in Applied Linguistics in the Graduate School, or the ASL/Deaf Studies graduate Program in the School of Education) during the academic year in question. Candidates for this
1. submit their application for admission to the appropriate Boston University graduate program following standard procedures (unless they have already been admitted); and
2. send a letter describing their interests and qualifications for the fellowship (and indicating the BU program to which they are applying or in which they are currently enrolled) to the address below.
See http://www.bu.edu/applied-linguistics/for-prospective-students/ for information about Linguistics graduate programs at Boston University. Please direct inquiries about this fellowship to firstname.lastname@example.org. I would also appreciate hearing in advance from those who intend to apply.
