We are happy to announce that two UWM linguistics doctoral students have been awarded fellowships to support their studies during the 2021-2022 academic year.
Okgi Kim was awarded a UWM Distinguished Dissertation Fellowship (DDF). He researches the syntactic and semantic properties of non-standard wh-items (e.g., when ‘what’ behaves like ‘why’).
Sujin Oh was awarded a UWM Distinguished Graduate Student Fellowship (DGSF). She researches how people acquire nonnative speech sounds and process them in learning a second language.
Congratulations, Okgi and Sujin!
