John J. Gumperz Memorial Fund Details » Donate Online
The Fund is used
- to sponsor student bursaries to present papers at the International Pragmatics Conferences
- to take a variety of initiatives to make expertise in pragmatics available across the globe
- to present a (non-monetary) John J. Gumperz life-time achievement award on the occasion of the International Pragmatics Conferences
During the 2017 conference in Belfast, four students were fully sponsored and two others received encouragement awards for the best student paper and the best student poster.
The first John J. Gumperz Life-Time Achievement Award went to Sandra Thompson (University of California, Santa Barbara).
