PIRE (short for Partnerships for International Research and Education) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) program that seeks to financially support research requiring international collaboration. Our PIRE program affords us the opportunity to send members (undergraduate/graduate students and post-doctoral fellows) from the Center of Language Science (CLS) to conduct research abroad at several international sites. CLS researchers investigate a broad array of topics including language processing, bilingualism, first and second language acquisition, language use, and language disorders. Students have the opportunity to conduct research abroad focusing on one of these topics.
