2018 University Graduate Fellows

Graduate Studies anticipates distributing approximately $1,000,000 in university graduate fellowship (UGF) funding to doctoral programs. The intent is to support departmental efforts that are aligned with the strategies and action items identified in strategic goal 2 of Bold Aspirations, the University’s strategic plan. That goal is to “Prepare doctoral students as innovators and leaders who are ready to meet the demands of the academy and our global society.”


Trevin Garcia | Linguistics

Research Interests

Garcia's research interests are in phonetics and dialect change. He has previously done research on the Latinx English dialect used in Southwest Kansas. He would like to continue his research in phonetics by examining how body modifications affect speech.  


Hyoju Kim | Linguistics

Research Interests

Kim's research interests focus on phonology, phonetic sciences, and second language acquisition, specifically how native speakers perceive foreign words. His main goal is to study more about loanword phonology and discover many phonological and phonetic factors that might attribute to the foreign language acquisition.
