Dear Subscribers, 

Our Grad School Challenge is still going strong!
Here are some recent developments:

In Asia, our leader in the grad school challenge
is the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies (Japan)
with $200 donated. 3 institutions are tied in second
place, with each having already donated $100: Meiji
Gakuin University (Japan), the Shanghai International
Studies University (China), and the City University
of Hong Kong (Hong Kong). A donation of just $5.00
could definitively push one of these three universities
into 2nd place, leaving the other two to compete for
3rd place!

But perhaps the real wild card is Nagoya University
(Japan), which is currently in 3rd place. A donation
of $35 would help this university beat out the three
tied for 2nd place!

For donations by country, Japan is leading with $535
donated, while Hong Kong is in second place with $190
and China's in third with $100!

But the challenge isn't over yet! If you want to see
your school or country take the lead, donate now:

And don't forget to watch the excitement unfold at the
Grad School Challenge section of our Fund Drive Page:


This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $67,000. 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 Fund 
Drive 2011 site!


There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form at  

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later. To do so, go to: 

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to 
donate by check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit: 

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!
