Dear subscribers, 


It's time for the Grad School Challenge... As many of you
know, for the past five years, schools from all over the
world have competed to see who can raise the most donations
for The LINGUIST List during our Fund Drive. It's a way for
faculty, students and alumni to kill two birds with one stone:
show their support for LINGUIST by contributing to our
operations, and support their own school as well! One of the
most effective ways you can do this is to organize a group
donation and challenge your rival school to match it. Students
or alumni can also challenge faculty to match their donations.

If you want to participate in the competition, just enter the
name of your school in the box provided at the URL below, and
make a donation:

http://linguistlist.org/donation/index.html

This year we'll be doing something a little different.
We'll still have an overall winner, but we've also
divided the world into regions, and each of these will
have regional winner. You can see how the regions were
divided at the following URL:

http://linguistlist.org/fund-drive/2009/gradschools/top-institutions-by-region.cfm


If you'd like to encourage your university department
to donate to LINGUIST, visit our resources page for grad
student organizers. You'll find a sample message you can
send to the all linguists at your school, and fun, freely
downloadable posters:

http://linguistlist.org/fund-drive/2009/gradschools/group.cfm


Grad School Organizers: John Benjamins has donated some
prizes for you! Each week, there will be a prize for the
grad school organizer who helps his/her school donate the
highest amount to LINGUIST during Fund Drive. If you are
an organizer, send your contact information and school to
marialinguistlist.org so that we have your information in
case you help your school donate the most in a particular
week.


Our database will track how much is credited toward each
school, and every day the leading overall and regional
schools will be prominently displayed on The LINGUIST List
homepage, along with links to the school's homepage. It's
a great way to highlight your school for the linguistics
community and show that you have an active, loyal, and
public-spirited faculty and student body. Check out how
your school and all the others are doing at:


http://linguistlist.org/fund-drive/2009/gradschools/top-institutions-by-region.cfm

And check the overall positions at:

http://linguistlist.org/fund-drive/2009/gradschools/allschools.cfm



When fund drive ends, the top 2 schools in each region will
receive special prizes that have been donated by our generous
subscribers and supporting publishers. Also, the overall
winner will receive an extra prize and the school's name and
logo will be featured prominently on the LINGUIST homepage
for 2 weeks. View prizes for winners at:

http://linguistlist.org/fund-drive/2009/gradschools/prizes.cfm



In 2008, Stanford took first place for the Grad School Challenge
with over $2685 in contributions. The University of Washington
and University of Arizona were not far behind! Who'll win this
year? It's up to you! Remember that anyone can donate - you
don't have to be a grad student or faculty: you just have to
be loyal to your school!

May the Best School Win!
The LINGUIST Crew





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.

See below for donation instructions, and don't forget to check out our Fund Drive 
2009 LINGUIST List Restaurant and join us for a delightful treat!

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form at  
https://linguistlist.org/donation/donate/donate1.cfm

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later. To do so, go to:
https://linguistlist.org/donation/pledge/pledge1.cfm

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to 
donate by check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit:
http://linguistlist.org/donate.html

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!
