Graduate Research Fellowship in ASL Linguistics

There may be opportunities in the future for Graduate Research Fellowships in ASL Linguistics in conjunction with the American Sign Language Linguistic Research Project, funded by the National Science Foundation. Fellows, who must be native or near-native ASL signesr, will assist with the elicitation, transcription, and linguistic analysis of ASL data.

Fellowship recipients will be students enrolled in a graduate program at Boston University (the interdisciplinary M.A. or Ph.D. Program in Linguistics in the Graduate School, the Deaf Education Program in the School of Education, or other programs) during the academic year in question.
