Student travel awards


The Terry Crowley memorial travel award is available to linguistics thesis students (Masters & PhD) enrolled at a NZ university who are paid-up members of the Linguistic Society of New Zealand. The award pays half of the receipted transport costs from the NZ university at which the student is based to another NZ university where they give an oral presentation about their thesis research. To receive the award, the thesis student needs to submit to the Treasurer of the Society (miriam.meyerhoff@vuw.ac.nz):

  1. an abstract of the talk presented
  2. a supporting e-mail from the department where they are studying
  3. a supporting e-mail from the department that hosted the talk
  4. a copy of the receipt for the airfare

The award will be made at the discretion of the Treasurer. The number of awards a student can apply for will initially be capped at one per year.
