Research projects supported by extramural funding agencies play an important role in linguistics, and graduate students learn first-hand about the construction of grant proposals and the management of grants in the research process. First and second-year students receive close mentorship in grant-writing through their participation in a workshop in the fall quarter which culminates in their application to the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship program.
