The Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) grant awarded to the Center for Language Science at the Pennsylvania State University trains a diverse workforce of language scientists, many of whom are from underrepresented groups in the STEM workforce, to conduct basic and applied behavioral and neuroscience research. Our PIRE work involves domestic and international collaborations, and aims to translate basic science in culturally diverse contexts.  PIRE II is hosted at both Penn State and the University of California at Riverside.
