The Fund Drive 2014 is OVER! Thank you so much to everyone for another successful year! We stopped this year before reaching our goal because the end of the Fund Drive coincided with the beginnings of the move of LINGUIST List from EMU to Indiana University. Though the Fund Drive is over donations are welcome at any time and can be contributed here.
This year we received AMAZING support from linguistic communities all over the world. Notable among these were Russia making the Top 5 in the Countries Challenge and University of Washington, who unseated the long-reigning champion in the University Challenge, Stanford University!
