The LDC Student Data Scholarship program provides successful candidates access to data at no cost. Established in 2010, the program formalized the Consortium’s long-standing principle that no one with a bona fide research agenda and an inability to contribute should go without data (DiPersio & Cieri, 2016). Since 2010, 113 recipients from 31 countries have received 178 corpora valued at over USD $300,000. Program results have aided new developments in multiple fields and most recipients have stated that the data received was vital to their work.

Special thanks for this program goes to LDC’s members who subsidize the program through their membership fees. Students can learn more about the scholarship application process, requirements and biannual deadlines on our Data Scholarship page.
