The Ann Reed Scholarship FundAnn Reed plays Ticket to Ride with Linguistics students

Our friend, colleague, and teacher Ann Reed was the Director of the Linguistics Program, the former chair of the English Department, and a long-standing member of the William and Mary faculty. Without her the Linguistics Program at W&M would not be here.

As a tribute to her long service, the Linguistics Program is raising funds to benefit undergraduate research. It is Professor Reed's hope that the funds could help send promising undergraduates to the Linguistic Institute every other summer.

Please consider contributing online to honor Professor Reed's service and to support undergraduate education. The contribution form will be pre-selected to direct your gift to the Linguistics Program Expendable Fund, which provides us the most flexibility in meeting student and faculty needs.

Matching gifts can double, or even triple, the impact of your igift. Your Human Resources office will be able to tell you if your employer has a matching gift program and provide details on how to secure the matched funds.
