Nominations Sought for Worthy Students

American Dialect Society President Michael Montgomery invites nominations of deserving students for three Presidential Honorary Memberships, to be awarded at the Society’s January 2005 annual meeting in San Francisco.

Presidential Honorary Memberships entitle the recipients to four years of complimentary membership from 2005 to 2008. If attending the annual meeting, recipients will also be guests at the Society’s annual luncheon and will be recognized publicly on that occasion. The aim of the awards is to encourage interest and participation of our best prospects.

Any ADS member may nominate a student, graduate or undergraduate, who shows outstanding aptitude for and interest in our field. There is no application form. Instead, the sponsoring ADS member is asked to send a letter detailing the nominee’s qualifications, together with supporting materials (if possible) such as a paper written under the sponsor’s supervision. Montgomery’s postal address is c/o Department of English, University of South Carolina, Columbia SC 29208.

If you wish, you are welcome to send a preliminary inquiry to Michael Montgomery.

Deadline for submitting nominations in December 10, 2004.
