Congratulations to Linguistics BA students Louisa Bielig and Douglas Gordon, who have received summer internship awards from the Faculty of Arts.

Louisa received an Arts Undergraduate Research Award (ARIA) to continue her work on Mayan languages with Jessica Coon. Louisa will travel to Guatemala this summer to collect and analyze data and contribute to a database. The work will form part of her Honours thesis next year.

Douglas received a Faculty of Arts Internship Award to carry out a summer internship at the Listuguj Education Directorate where he will assist in the documentation of Mi’gmaq language classes and the creation of online language-learning material.

Congratulations both!
