Contest announcement! Making noise and going places βœˆοΈπŸ›„

I recently wrote the acknowledgements section my dissertation and it really put into perspective how much help I’ve received during my degree. I’ve decided to pass some of that on by helping out others! Specifically, I’ve decided to help make travelling to conferences a little more affordable for linguistics students who are from underrepresented minorities (African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, or Latin@), LGBT or have a disability.

Biologist speaking at the Friday morning Town Hall session, where attendees were welcome to discuss their ideas on how to further landscape conservation. (5471417317)

To enter:

Entry is open to any student (graduate or undergraduate) studying any aspect of language (broadly defined) whoΒ is from an underrepresented minority (African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, or Latin@), LGBT or has a disability. Β E-mail me and attach:

  • An abstract or paper that has been accepted at an upcoming (i.e. starting after June 23, 2017) conference
  • The acceptance letter/email from the conference
  • A short biography/description of your work

One entry per person, please!

Prizes:

I’ll pick up to two entries. Each winner will receive 100 American dollars to help them with costs associated with the conference, and I’ll write a blog post highlighting each winner’s research.

Contest closes July 31,Β I’ll contact winners by July 5

Good luck!
