The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently awarded a $27,000 grant to The University of Texas at El Paso’s Wendy Francis, Ph.D., professor of psychology, who will use the funds to support students who will conduct research on bilingual language and memory processes for her ongoing NSF research grant.
She also will use the money to contribute to student conference presentations and manuscripts, as well as to help them complete an honors thesis.
Francis directs UTEP’s Bilingual Cognition Laboratory where faculty and student researchers investigate how bilingual experience and proficiency impact memory and spoken word retrieval. The University established the lab in 1999.
The one-year grant starts Sept. 1, 2019.
