Yumi Nakamura Prize in Linguistics
The Yumi Nakamura Prize in Linguistics was established to honor the memory of Ms. Yumi Nakamura, a Linguistics student who died at UT Arlington in January 2000. Her family and the Department of Linguistics have contributed funds to be awarded each year to the best student papers at the UT Arlington Student Conference in Linguistics and TESOL.

All students presenting papers and posters are eligible to be included in the competition for the prize. The prize will be awarded at the Friday evening session.
