The Linguistic Society of America (LSA) and the Endangered Language Fund is partnering with the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC), to learn from Tribal Colleges & Universities (TCUs) how linguists can support their language research and revitalization goals, and to foster ongoing collaborations with TCU students/faculty and linguists through identifying potential sources of support for such collaborations.
Twenty fellowships, which cover travel, lodging, meals, and conference registration to the LSA Annual Meeting and the Workshop (January 5-8, 2017 in Austin, Texas), will be awarded through an application process to TCU students/faculty. Each participant will be paired with a linguistics faculty or graduate student mentor throughout the conference.
