Tucker Fellowship

The Center for Applied Linguistics invites applications for the 2001 G.Richard Tucker Fellowship.

From June 2001 through May 2002, including a 4-week residency at CAL in Washington, DC, the Fellow will interact with senior staff members on one of CAL's existing research projects or on a suitable project suggested by the Fellow.

The fellowship pays a stipend plus travel expenses. Priority will be given to proposals that focus on language education and testing or on language issues related to minorities in the United States or Canada.

The competition is open to candidates for a master's or doctoral degree in any field that is concerned with the study of language. Minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants must be currently enrolled in a degree program in the United States or Canada and must have completed the equivalent of at least 1 year of full-time graduate study. Applications must be received on or before April 20, 2001.
