Subject: graduate research fellowship in ASL linguistics

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 and transcription of ASL data. 
The fellowship, which provides full tuition plus a stipend, is for academic 
year 1999-2000 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 Deaf Studies 
Program in the School of Education) during the academic year in question. 
Candidates for this fellowship should:

 1. submit their application for admission to the appropriate 
 Boston University graduate program following standard procedures;

 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 Prof. Carol Neidle, Boston University MFLL, 718 Commonwealth Ave., 
 Boston, MA 02215.
