The IRES Track Experimental Linguistics in the Caribbean is recruiting talented undergraduate and graduate students residing in the U.S. from (but not limited to) historically minoritized groups to partake in a full-time 7 week program (June 13 to July 31 2022) to engage in research in experimental linguistics and to benefit from training to conduct research in diverse socio-cultural, geographic and linguistic environments.

Applications from undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in programs in African-American/Black/Caribbean Studies, Cognitive Science, Computational Sciences, Education, Linguistics, Modern Languages, Psychology, Speech-Language-Hearing-Communication Sciences are welcome!

Objective: Combining scientific and global/international experience

Despite growing awareness in the need for diversity in Higher Education, progress is impeded by the iota of minorities enrolled in linguistic-oriented disciplines. This seven-week program will address these two limitations by equipping students with a combination STEM-based and cross-cultural and linguistic skills to conduct research projects in different environments that they will be able to subsequently use to succeed in their academic and professional careers.
