FGAE Travel Grant

The First Gen Access & Equity (FGAE) Committee is granting one $500 travel award to a first-generation student in linguistics to attend the next LSA Annual Meeting in New York. This award is intended to increase the participation of first-gen students in the LSA and FGAE Committee; awardees will have the opportunity to explore linguistics topics or pursue their own areas of interest further by connecting with peers and scholars at the Annual Meeting.


The First Gen Access & Equity (FGAE) Committee reviews nominations and makes recommendations to the Executive Committee, which must formally approve the recommendations.
