Understanding the Bilingual Mind and Brain, a NSF Partnership for International Research and Education (PIRE) Program Opportunity for Summer 2013

An information session for potential PIRE undergraduate applicants will be held on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 from 5:30-6:30pm in Room 120 Thomas Building
The PIRE grant “Bilingualism, mind, and brain: An interdisciplinary program in cognitive psychology, linguistics, and cognitive neuroscience,” awarded to the CLS for a 5-year period (2010-2015), allows for the creation of international research opportunities for qualified undergraduate students working on language research, who have had research experience with CLS faculty. The CLS includes faculty in Psychology, Spanish, German, and Communication Sciences and Disorders. Each year, 8 CLS undergraduate students* will receive funding to conduct innovative research on bilingualism at leading collaborating institutions in Europe and Asia. These include Beijing Normal University (Beijing, China); University of Hong Kong (China); Max Planck Institute (Leipzig,Germany); Radboud University (Nijmegen, The Netherlands); University of Granada (Granada, Spain); Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Spain); Bangor University (Wales, UK); and Lund University (Sweden). Funding will cover airfare, housing and meals, tuition, and some incidentals and research expenses. *To be eligible, students must be enrolled in research with a CLS faculty member for Fall 2012, Spring 2013, and must be returning to campus in the Fall 2013. See http://cls.psu.edu/PIRE for additional information and requirements. The eight PIRE fellowships are restricted to Penn State students who are US citizens but note that in 2013, we will be able to award one additional undergraduate fellowship to a Penn State student who is an international student and/or not a US citizen. So this session is open to everyone! Information session for potential PIRE undergraduate applicants Wednesday August 29th, 2012 5:30-6:30 PM Room 120 Thomas Building
