EALC Development Fund
This fund provides support for the department's academic mission in flexible ways: to reward outstanding performance in on-campus language study not covered by a dedicated fund (i.e., Japanese and Korean), to defray the travel expenses of graduate students who present papers at conferences, to support faculty when their teaching and research activities incur expenses that are not covered by limited university resources, for extra-curricular cultural functions, and other such events and materials that support our academic mission.
