Rodrigo awarded grant for summer research

DC's Cosmos Club will support "Documenting Santiago Tz'utujiil," a project Rodrigo Ranero will undertake this summer, traveling to Patzún and Santiago Atitlán to work with consultants in analyzing the morphosyntax of their variety of Tz'utujiil. The Cosmos Club was founded in 1878 for the promotion of science, literature, art and "their mutual improvement by social intercourse." Rodrigo's grant is part of what since 1998 has been the club's main enterprise: a program of small research grants for graduate students enrolled in selected universities in the Washington, D.C. area.
