Submitted by Karoliina Kuisma on

Congratulations to undergraduate Computer Science and Linguistics double major Alessio Tosolini, who has received a 2023-24 Chester William Fritz Humanities Scholarship.  This award supports highly deserving students in the Humanities departments of the College of Arts and Sciences.

In her letter of support for the nomination, Prof. Myriam Lapierre wrote of UG RA Tosolini:  “I am genuinely impressed by Mr. Tosolini’s potential for outstanding research. Despite having only completed the core introductory class in Linguistics, Mr. Tosolini understands core and advanced concepts of linguistics better than many students who have completed the Linguistics major.”  Prof. Sharon Hargus, in her letter of support, noted that in addition to his academic achievements, Tosolini was “a great citizen of the Linguistics Department and UW community, maybe the first undergraduate I have ever described with that term”, as evidenced by his involvement with ASL Club, key role in forming the UG Linguistics Society, and frequent attender of optional academic events, such as semi-weekly roundtable discussion groups and the departmental colloquium.

Congratulations again, Alessio Tosolini!
