PhD Student Jae Weller honored with Graduate Student Service Scholarship

Congratulations to 3rd year Linguistics PhD student Jae Weller who received a well-deserved Graduate Student Service Scholarship this year! This award from the Graduate School recognizes and honors graduate students who volunteer to take on service roles in addition to their research, work, and family obligations.

Jae was nominated due to their outstanding and inspiring service to our campus as Co-President of the Linguistics Student Organization (LSO). Jae has been a central force in the LSO since they arrived on campus, and has contributed to many projects including an innovative ASM grant which allowed undergraduate Linguistics students to travel to New York for the annual meeting of the Linguistic Society of America in 2024, organization of a Linguistics graduate school panel, a leading role in organizing the annual Workshop in General Linguistics, and numerous social events for students of all levels. Congratulations Jae – we really appreciate the many ways that you enrich our community, and are very happy to see your efforts recognized at the campus level with this award!
