2021 Research Grants, Scholarships and Clyne Prize now open

ALS is delighted to announce that the 2021 Research Grants scheme, Gerhardt Laves Scholarship, Susan Kaldor Scholarship, Jalwang Scholarship, and Michael Clyne Prize are now open to applications. Applications for all schemes close on 5 May 2021.

The Research Grants scheme offers grants of up to $5,000 for research in any area of linguistics, and funds approximately six projects per year. The Michael Clyne Prize (awarded jointly with the Applied Linguistics Association of Australia) is awarded for the best postgraduate research thesis in immigrant bilingualism and language contact. The Jalwang Scholarship supports linguists to give back to the community by converting some of their research into materials of benefit to the language community. The Gerhardt Laves Scholarship contributes to fieldwork expenses for postgraduate student researchers in Indigenous languages of Australia or its immediate region. The Susan Kaldor Scholarship supports ALS student members to participate in an international summer school or institute.

Further details and application process are under the funding and support tab.
