Ryan Neale Cross Memorial Fellowship to Support Assistive Technology in Linguistics 

cherry blossoms

Beginning this year, we're honored to offer the Ryan Neale Cross Memorial Fellowship to support students studying computational linguistics with the goal of improving accessibility through assistive technology.

This fellowship was made possible by generous donations from friends, family, and colleagues in memory of Ryan Neal Cross, a CLMS alumnus. The fellowship is also supported in part by the Continuous Path foundation, who shares our goals of supporting assistive technology through computational linguistics.

CLMS director Professor Emily Bender says of the fellowship:

"We are honored to be able to offer this fellowship in memory of Ryan and are very excited to see what kind of work on applications of computational linguistics to accessibility our students will pursue. We look forward to supporting that work!"

Students interested in applying for the Ryan Neale Cross Memorial Fellowship may do so in conjunction with their application to the CLMS program.
