Dear Readers,

We are excited to announce that the upcoming 2019 Fund Drive will feature not only remarkable linguists, but also undergraduate and MA students who have gone above and beyond the classroom to participate in the wider field of linguistics. Selected nominees will be featured on the LINGUIST List as part of the 2019 Fund Drive's ''Rising Stars'' series.

In previous years, we featured only undergraduates, but in order to make room for extraordinary students with a wider range of educational paths (those who originally completed their undergraduate degree in Linguistics, those who attend universities that don’t have undergraduate linguistics programs, or in countries where serious academic work is usually begun at the level of MA, for example) we have decided to expand the nomination form to include MA students.

Students should exemplify a commitment to not only academic performance, but also to the field of linguistics and principles of scientific inquiry. We are looking for those undergraduates and MA who are excited about participating in the global community of linguistic researchers. Students need not already be published, but should have already contributed in some way to the this community.

We ask that students be nominated by a mentor or advisor (or two mentors). Please include a short description of why this student is a ''Rising Star'' in linguistics, and any relevant supplemental links to their work.

We look forward to reading about these future linguists!

Yours truly,

The LINGUIST List Team
