The Department of Linguistics at The University of New Mexico offers the Joseph H. Greenberg Fellowship, endowed by a generous bequest from the late Selma Greenberg, to one entering Ph.D. student every year. The fellowship currently provides a stipend to an outstanding doctoral student for three and a half years. The department will provide a further half year of support through a full-time teaching assistantship. The fellowship and the teaching assistantship will also provide six to nine hours of graduate tuition each fall and spring semester, as well as graduate health insurance coverage.
All new applicants to the Ph.D. program in Linguistics at UNM will be considered; there is no separate fellowship application form. Applications to the Ph.D. program in Linguistics at UNM are welcomed from students with an MA degree in Linguistics or the equivalent. The department specializes in functional, cognitive and typological linguistics, Native American language documentation and revitalization (especially Navajo and other indigenous languages of the American Southwest), and signed language linguistics. Links to online application forms can be found at http://ling.unm.edu/graduate-programs/apply.html. Applications must be submitted by December 15th for consideration for the Greenberg Fellowship. For further information, please email lingasst at unm.edu or contact the Department of Linguistics at (+1) (505)-277-6353.
