Dear Subscribers,

The race is on! University of Toronto is challenging all other
schools in the grad school challenge! The University of
Toronto has been in the lead of the overall challenge for
four days in row! The University of Michigan and the University
of Washington has been close by the whole time.

Donate now and make your school the leader!

Today, the University of Wisconsin-Madison took a huge jump and
it is now third and pushing the University of Washington to
fourth place! Will it be able to move up to second place?

We have a new leader in the Asia region! Tohoku University
took the first place today. Tianjin Foreign Studies University
also took a new spot placing second. Will Saga National
University be able to move back up?

The Universitat de Barcelona has also been in the first place
for the European region for a few days. Oxford University
Phonetics Laboratory, Swansea University, University of
Geneva, University of Oxford, Vrije University Brussels,
Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS and University of Oxford
are all in second place. Will one of these schools be able to
move up to take first place and destitute the Universitat
de Barcelona?

In the US East region, the University of Michigan is taking
the lead at this time. However, the University of Wisconsin-Madison
moved up close and may take the lead very shortly. Will the
student and faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison
be able to get together and make this possible?

The University of Washington is ahead of all other schools in
the US West region. Arizona State University, University of
Arizona, University of California, Berkeley and Stanford
University are all close by trying to move up the list! Which
one of these schools will be able to make it to the top?

There has been a tie in the Pacific region for almost a week
now between Griffith University and Monash University. Are there
other institutions in that region who want to put an end to
this? Take the lead! Donate now to make your school the leader!

In the Middle East region, Bar-Ilan University is ahead of
all other institutions. University of Cyprus, Tel-Aviv University
and American University of Kuwait are in second, third and fourth
place respectively. Will this order last?

In teh African region we only have one participating institution:
University of Botswana. Which school will raise to the occasion
and take the lead in this group?

Remember, all regions will have two winners. The top schools in
each region will receive a prize! Remember these are prizes
for your department! You will be able to share this prize, as
you got together to make your school a winner!

Grad School challenge coordinators: remember that you could
also win a prize if your school donated the most in each of the
fund drive weeks! Last week, the coordinator for the University
of Toronto got this prize! Will it be you next week?

Donate now and help your school get to the top!


This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $60,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
