The Center for Applied Linguistics periodically offers two fellowships as outlined below.
The Charles A. Ferguson Fellowship
The Ferguson Fellowship was established in 1995 in honor of Charles A. Ferguson, CAL’s founder and first director, to allow senior researchers in applied linguistics to affiliate with CAL as visiting scholars, contribute to ongoing work in their area of expertise, and further their own research and writing. Previous fellows were Bernard Spolsky, Rod Ellis, Joseph Lo Bianco, Catherine Snow, and Barbara Horvath. The fellowship is awarded periodically by CAL’s President.
The G. Richard Tucker Fellowship
The Tucker fellowship was established in 1992 in honor of Dr. G. Richard Tucker, CAL’s president from 1979 to 1991. The fellowship is awarded periodically to a master’s or doctoral student working in a language-related field.
