Students Awards for travel offered by LSNZ
There are currently two travel awards available to students. Information about these and how to apply is provide below.
The Chris Corne Monopod Travel Award
This award is given by the Linguistic Society of NZ to students who present a paper at Linguistic Society of NZ conferences (including Language and Society conferences). The award pays for one leg of the two legs of a journey to a lingsoc conference. Hence monopod. To receive the award students should present the relevant page from the conference programme and a copy of the receipt for the travel to the Treasurer of the Society (firstname.lastname@example.org) after the conference at which they have presented. This award is only available for students enrolled at a NZ institution for travel within NZ. The award will be made at the discretion of the Treasurer.
Chris Corne was a world leading Creole expert and one time editor of Te Reo. Chris broke his leg twice, once at a lingsoc conference, becoming (temporarily) a monopod in the process. This award commemorates his substantial and enduring contribution to New Zealand linguistics.
The Terry Crowley Memorial Travel Award
This award is available to linguistics thesis students (Masters & PhD) enrolled at any New Zealand university who are paid-up members of the Linguistic Society of New Zealand. The award covers half of the receipted transport costs from the NZ university at which the student is based to another NZ university where the student is to give an oral presentation about their thesis research. To receive the award, the thesis student needs to submit to the Treasurer of the Society (email@example.com):
- an abstract of the talk presented
- a supporting e-mail from the department where they are studying
- a supporting e-mail from the department that hosted the talk
- 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.
