Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

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

At the beginning of last week, we informed you that
in Europe the top three universities were:

Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium): $301
University of Surrey (United Kingdom): $300
Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Spain): $265

Katholieke Universiteit Leuven has held its position
in the lead, now at $401. We've had an exciting
development for second place last week, with the Center
for Advanced Study in Theoretical Linguistics (U. Troms´┐Ż,
Netherlands) emerging with $365. University of Surrey
also continues to be an incredibly strong contributor
with $300. With the Leiden University Center for
Linguistics climbing up to $270 and Universitat Pompeu
Fabra at $265, it is a close race! A few days and a few
donations make all the difference.

For donations by country, the UK is leading strong with
$1253 donated, while Spain is in second place with $985
and Germany's in third with $828!

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!
