To be given for the first time in 2020, this award is made possible by a generous contribution from the family of late (1951-2018) LSA member Elizabeth Pine Dayton (University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez).  It is a travel award for graduate students pursuing a specialization in sociolinguistics to attend the LSA Annual Meeting. The Elizabeth Dayton Award will cover registration, travel, lodging, and per diem costs subject to the earnings of the initial endowment over the prior 12-month period.

Applications are due September 27, 2019.  Applicants must attest that they meet the basic criteria for the award – are LSA members, are graduate students, and are pursuing a course of studies with a specialization in sociolinguistics – and will submit a CV, a transcript, and a statement of 250 words or less detailing how winning the Dayton Award will enhance their scholarly career.
