2009 Linguistic Institute at Berkeley: fellowships


This is a reminder that the application deadline for student fellowships at the 2009 Linguistic Institute is coming up soon, and to let you know that affiliate registration and student course selection are now open. Full details are at the Institute website.

Running from July 6 through August 13, the 2009 Institute features about 90 courses, six plenary lectures, and half a dozen major conferences on the Berkeley campus of the University of California. We encourage faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and other researchers who wish to attend the Institute as affiliates to register as soon as possible.

Affiliate fees are the source of funding for student fellowships; the more affiliates register, the more student fellowships we can provide. We also encourage students who will attend the Institute to select courses through our course selection website. Information about affiliate registration and student course selection is on our Registration page.

The student fellowship application deadline is Tuesday, February 17 (with letters of recommendation due Monday, February 23). For details please see the following web pages: Institute information, and more information on fellowships.

We expect to notify fellowship recipients and alternates (waitlisted pending funding) by mid-March. Finally, we urge all students and affiliates to consider making their housing arrangements early. We have reserved blocks of rooms through April 1 and May 1 respectively in two campus dormitories; rooms are not guaranteed after those dates (and the number of rooms is finite even before those dates). We look forward to welcoming you to Berkeley this summer.
