Research Funding

Graduate Students

Research is an integral part of graduate student studies, so the department seeks to support that research with funding where needed. Graduate students can apply for funding for research that is related to their thesis. All research requests must be explained in detail on the Research Funds Application and endorsed by a faculty member. Funding requests will be reviewed by the research funding committee with priority given to projects that will be publicly presented at regional, national or international academic conferences or written up for publication in peer-reviewed academic journals. Application forms are available in the Linguistics Department office, 4064 JFSB, or on the Graduate Resources page.
