    NARRATOR:Listen to a conversation between a student and a professor.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Professor Jennings? I hope I'm not interrupting, but you wanted to see me?

    MALE PROFESSOR:Oh, hello, Suzanne. Yes, yes, come right in. How're you doing?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Alright.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Well, good. The reason I wanted to talk to you was that while you were presenting your linguistics project in class the other day... well, you know, I was thinking,you're a perfect candidate for the Dean's Undergraduate Research Fund.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Um, professor, I'm not really sure what the uh... Dean's...

    MALE PROFESSOR:[interrupting]Undergraduate Research Fund is? It is a mouthful, I suppose.OK, here's the thing, every year the school has a pool of money to fund a number of research projects of undergraduate students because, as you can imagine,in-depth research often requires monetary support.

    FEMALE STUDENT:[thinking aloud]I would like to expand on my research...

    MALE PROFESSOR:Good. First a panel of professors reviews the applications for the grant, and then they decide on which research projects should be funded.The allotted money could be used for travel expenses, to attend a conference, for example, or for things like supplies, research equipment, resources that are necessary to conduct the research.

    FEMALE STUDENT:I see...

    MALE PROFESSOR:Right. And I think you should apply for this grant.Your project is definitely eligible. And you could expand it if you had the necessary resources.[hopefully, rising tone]So, does it sound like something you'd be interested in?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Oh yeah, it sounds great. I thought the topic I worked on was really interesting.And it's certainly relevant to my linguistics major.I assume it would also look good when I try to get into graduate school.But how do I apply for the grant?

    MALE PROFESSOR:It's pretty straightforward.A brief description of your proposed project, and an estimated budget-how much you'd need to spend and what you intend to spend it on.Also, a glowing letter of recommendation from a linguistics professor wouldn't hurt, which I'd be more than happy to write up for you.

    FEMALE STUDENT:[light laughter]OK, cool. I'm pretty clear on how to carry out my project, but I'm not sure where I can find more information on the subject...

    MALE PROFESSOR:Well, I've already thought of that.There's this private library at a university in Boston- by the way, because I graduated from that school, I can get you access to it, no problem- see, the library houses lots of unpublished documents that are relevant to your topic.

    FEMALE STUDENT:So I could put that in the application for the grant... that I plan on using material from that library for my research,and figure a trip to Boston into my budget?

    MALE PROFESSOR:Exactly. I really think, judging from your work in class, and the relevance and clarity of this project,you really have a good chance of getting the funding.

    FEMALE STUDENT:OK, I'll definitely apply then.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Well, the sooner the better, it's due in a few weeks,good luck, and I'll get that letter written up right away.

  • 旁白:听学生和教授之间的对话。

    学生:詹宁斯教授吗?我希望我没有打扰你,但是你想见我?

    教授:哦,你好,苏珊娜。是的,是的,进来吧。最近怎么样?

    学生:很棒!

    教授:嗯,好的。我想和你谈谈的原因是前几天你在课堂上展示的语言学项目很不错…嗯,你知道,我在想,你是院长本科生研究基金的理想人选。

    学生:嗯,教授,我不太清楚那是什么…院长..

    教授:本科生研究基金...嗯,这是个挺绕嘴的名字。好的,事情是这样的,就是这个每年,学校都有大量资金资助本科生的一些研究项目,所以你可以想象得到,深入研究往往需要货币支持。

    学生:我当然愿意把我的研究推进下去…

    教授:好的。首先,一个教授小组审查补助金的申请,然后他们决定应该资助哪一个研究项目。分配的钱可以用于旅行费用——比如参加一个讨论议,或者诸如供应、研究设备等等...进行研究所必需的资源。

    学生:我明白了...

    教授:好的,我认为你应该申请这个补助金。你的项目绝对符合条件。如果你有必要的资源,你可以扩展它。那么,这听上去是让你感兴趣的东西吗?

    学生:哦,是的,听起来很棒。我认为我研究的主题很有趣。这当然与我的语言学专业有关。我想,这个项目应该会为我进入研究生院增光添彩吧!但是我如何申请助学金呢?

    教授:这很简单。对你提议的项目的简要描述,估计预算—你需要花多少钱,你打算花多少钱?此外,一封来自语言学教授的热情洋溢的推荐信也不会有什么坏处,我很乐意为你写信。

    学生:好的,酷。我很清楚如何执行我的计划,但我不知道在哪里可以找到更多关于这个这题的信息…

    教授:嗯,我已经考虑过了。在波士顿的一所大学有一个私人图书馆—顺便说一下,因为我毕业于那所学校,我能让你接触到它,那里有许多与你的主题相关的未发表的文档。

    学生:所以我可以把它放在申请补助金中…我打算用那个图书馆的资料做研究,算一个波士顿之行到我的预算?

    教授:当然可以!我认为,从你的课堂作业以及项目的相关性和清晰性来看,你真的很有可能得到资金。

    学生:好的,我一定会申请。

    教授:好吧,越快越好,几周后就到期了,祝你好运,我马上就把那封信写好。
