AUSTIN, Texas — An undergraduate and two alumni from the Department of Linguistics have been awarded National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships, the most prestigious fellowships available to American students for graduate study in the sciences.

The recipients are:

  • Isla Flores-Bayer (B.A. Hispanic Linguistics, ‘09)
  • Cassandra Jacobs (B.A. Linguistics/Psychology, ‘10)
  • Jessika Roesner, Plan II Honors/Linguistics/ Computer Science senior

An honorable mention went to Kelsey Neely, a linguistics senior who will be joining the doctoral program in the Department of Linguistics at the University of California Berkeley after she graduates in May.

The three-year fellowships support the nation's most promising young scholars in the early stages of their graduate study. The fellowships are also designed to ensure the growth of mathematics, the sciences, and engineering research in the United States.
