Tanya Honig Graduate Development Fund

Tanya Honig
Tanya Honig, who retired in 2010, was the heart and soul of the Department of Linguistics at UCSC for more than twenty years, serving as Department Manager and Graduate Coordinator.

The Tanya Honig Graduate Development Fund was set up with two purposes in mind:

  1. to honor Tanya, who generously and selflessly nurtured many cohorts of MA and PhD students in Linguistics, and
  2. to open new research opportunities for graduate students in the Linguistics Department whose academic performance is distinguished and who, like Tanya, have contributed significantly to the department's life and sense of community.

Other examples of things your support to this fund helps pay for: are travel for research in the field or to research conferences for graduate students, graduate research support supplies, and equipment.
