Description:

The Department of French and Italian at The University of Texas at Austin will 
offer merit-based graduate scholarships for outstanding students in French 
Linguistics beginning in fall 2011. The Julia Emerson Walther Scholars will receive 
generous multi-year packages that include highly competitive stipends, 
professional development support, and pre-dissertation funding for extensive study 
in a francophone country.

About the program:
There is currently a cohort of 23 graduate students in French Linguistics in the 
Department of French and Italian and 6 full-time faculty members: Carl Blyth, 
David Birdsong, Barbara E. Bullock, Bryan Donaldson, Jean-Pierre Montreuil and 
Cinzia Russi.

Students in the program gain a strong background in linguistics that enables them 
to conduct extensive empirical research on the French language. Areas of 
specialization within the Department include historical linguistics and language 
change, sociolinguistics, bilingualism, language contact and language change, 
dialectology, second language acquisition, and language production, perception 
and processing. The Department has an excellent placement record for its 
graduates.

The program, which aims to train future French linguists who intend to pursue a 
career in academic research and teaching, benefits from strong links with the 
departments of Linguistics, Anthropology, Psychology, Education, Spanish and 
Portuguese, German, Middle Eastern Studies, and Communication Sciences. In 
addition, the University of Texas at Austin has a student and faculty research 
exchange with the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, 
Netherlands. Graduate students at the University of Texas at Austin can also 
receive course credits from the International Max Planck Research School in 
Nijmegen.

Several student-organized language and linguistics conferences are held on an 
annual basis at the University of Texas at Austin, including FIGSO Conference 
(the French-Italian Graduate Students Organization Conference), SALSA 
(Symposium about Language and Society-Austin), TexFLEC (Texas Foreign 
Language Education Conference), and the TLS Conference (Texas Linguistics 
Society Conference). 

In addition, UT-Austin is home to a new National Foreign Language Resource 
Center, The Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning 
(COERLL). The Center operates in conjunction with the Texas Language 
Technology Center and seeks to draw on and expand UT's many open educational 
resources.  One such resource, designed at UT for the Internet public, is the 
globally popular Tex's French Grammar.
