Graduate and undergraduate students interested in attending the LSA's 2017 Linguistic Institute can now begin applications (login required) for student fellowships. A large number of fellowships covering the full cost of tuition are available, as well as four named fellowships which cover additional expenses.

The 2017 Linguistic Institute, themed "Language Across Space and Time", will be held from July 5 - August 1 and hosted by the University of Kentucky. Over the Institute's four weeks, scores of courses will be offered on introductory and advanced topics across linguistics.

Linguistic Institute Fellowship applications require a statement of purpose, details about academic preparation (including transcripts, in most cases), and two letters of recommendation. More information on application requirements and on the Bloch, Sag, McCawley and Hale fellowships is provided on the LSA website. Information on application instructions and eligibility requirements is also available; note that though fellowship applications are only open to students, both students and faculty are encouraged to attend the Linguistic Institute. Registration for the Institute will begin in the spring of 2017.

All elements of the application, including letters of recommendation, must be submitted by Wednesday, February 1.  Applicants should therefore submit their applications sufficiently early to allow their recommenders to submit letters of reference by the February 1 deadline.  All applicants must be student members of the LSA. To begin the application, visit http://www.linguisticsociety.org/fellowship-application (LSA member login required); if you're already logged in to the LSA website, you can click the "Submit Fellowship Application" button on your profile page to begin. If you are not already a student member, you may join the LSA by visiting this page.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have about the 2017 Institute or fellowship applications, and follow the LSA's website and social media (as well as the Institute's website and social media) for further updates. We look forward to seeing you in Lexington!
