Linguistics PhD candidate Colleen Patton has been chosen as a Russel J. and Dorothy S. Bilinski Foundation Fellow by the Graduate College at the University of Arizona. The Bilinski Fellowship provides recipients with a $25,000 stipend as well as tuition assistance to support their dissertation research and expedite time to degree. Colleen will be using the fellowship to fund several fieldwork trips to Scotland in 2018 and 2019 to conduct interviews for her comparative research on Celtic language revitalization in Brittany and in Scottland. During this time she will also attend several Celtic research conferences in Scotland, Ireland, and Briitany. Colleen will also spend the year writing the dissertation for an anticipated defense in 2019.
