Congratulations to undergrads Amy Rosen and Nishtha Trivedi for each winning a Henry Rutgers Scholar Award!

Amy, a linguistics major, and Nishtha, a cognitive science major, were recognized with this award for completing outstanding theses on independent research projects. The award, which includes a $1,000 prize, is given to exemplary seniors and juniors across all the School of Arts and Sciences departments.

Nishtha’s Cognitive Science honors thesis was titled “Prosodic marking of information structure and contrastive focus in autistic adults.”

Amy’s Linguistics honors thesis was titled “Communication across modalities: An investigation of co-speech gesture in a lexical suppression task,” which was also awarded Highest Honors and the Department of Linguistics Award for Research Excellence.
