The Gil Watz Visiting Scholar Program provides an opportunity for Applied Linguistics scholars at institutions other than Penn State to spend up to one semester in residence at Penn State. Visiting scholars are encouraged to pursue research projects, and to interact with department graduate students and faculty, both formally, through workshops and lectures, and informally, through one-on-one and small group meetings. The program provides a stipend for travel and lodging and a modest honorarium for workshops and lectures. For a list of previous Gil Watz Visiting Scholars, please click here. Those interested in applying to this program should contact Dr. Kevin McManus, Director of the Center for Language Acquisition.
