Stanley Donahoo, doctoral candidate in Linguistics (Cognitive Science GIDP minor) was recently awarded three fellowships to conduct pragmatics research in Germany. For the 2017-2018 academic year, Stanley will join the researchers at the Centre for General Linguistics (ZAS) in Berlin, contributing to the priority program for new pragmatic theories based on experimental evidence. Ultimately, Stanley has selected the federally funded research fellowship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The award provides funding for one academic year as well as research support and travel funds.
Stanley was also selected for the Studienstiftung des Abgeordnetenhauses von Berlin. The Study Foundation sponsors young scholars of all fields working on projects that require access to research facilities in Berlin. The grants are awarded according to various criteria, above all academic achievement. Only three Americans are awarded this grant annually.
He was also selected for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.
Stanley is looking forward to his time in Berlin, where he will collect data that feeds into his dissertation research.
