Applications are now open for the University of Maryland’s 3rd annual Summer Field School in Guatemala, from May 26th, 2018 to June 24th, 2018. The field school brings students and faculty to Guatemala for a month long trip including two weeks of intensive Kaqchikel language classes and two weeks devoted to research (primarily on Mayan languages, though opportunities for research in other fields may be available). This is an ideal opportunity for graduate students and advanced undergraduate students to study a Mayan language and conduct fieldwork. More information and a link to the application can be found on the Maryland Language Science Center’s website.

Applications are due by Monday, March 5th 2018.
