LDC Data Scholarship Update

LDC received many solid applications for the Fall 2014 LDC Data Scholarship Program.  We are in the process of reviewing submissions and will announce recipients soon. The LDC Data Scholarship program provides university students with access to LDC data at no-cost. Students were asked to complete an application which consisted of a proposal describing their intended use of the data, as well as a letter of support from their thesis adviser.

Data use proposals in this cycle included a range of research interests from opinion mining tagging to deceptive speech classification.
