Student Travel and Research Funding
Department Support for Student Conference Travel
The Department is pleased to be able to offer support for graduate student travel to conferences. For the current policy, please see the Doctoral Student Travel Reimbursement Policy.
Students interested in accessing departmental travel support to attend conferences should speak with Tom Maxfield. You must also register your travel at UMass Travel Registry (the first time you log in, you must also create a 'profile'). The last piece of information you will need to supply is that our department only requires one approver and that approver is Tom Maxfield.
Departmental Support for Graduate Student Research
Use this research support application form to request funds from the department to support your research. Eligibility is limited to doctoral students in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. (For collaborative projects, at least one of the researchers must meet this criterion.)
Appropriate uses of this money include (but are not limited to) fees paid to native-speaker consultants or experimental subjects, partial support for linguistic field work, travel to consult archival materials, or purchase of equipment (other than personal computers). Do not use this form to apply for travel to conferences (instead see information on conference travel support above).
