Frederick V. Hunt Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Acoustics

Application for the 2012 Fellowship will be posted in Spring 2011

The F. V. Hunt Postdoctoral Research Fellowship was established by the Society to carry out Professor Hunt's wish that his estate be used to further the science of, and education in acoustics. Fellows receive a stipend, provided jointly by the Hunt estate and a fund established by the Acoustical Society, to support their research on a topic in acoustics at an institution of their choice. One Fellowship is usually awarded each year. The past and present Hunt Fellows are:


Minority Fellowship

Availability of next Minority Fellowship will be announced in Fall 2011

The Acoustical Society of America established a Minority Fellowship in 1992 with the goal of supporting minority students in their pursuit of graduate-level degrees in acoustics. To be eligible for the fellowship, the applicant must have permanent residence or citizenship in the United States or Canada at the time of application. He/she must also be a member of a minority group (Hispanic, African American or Native American) that is underrepresented in the sciences. Recipients have been:


Raymond H. Stetson Scholarship in Phonetics and Speech Science

Application for 2011 Scholarship will be posted in January 2011

This scholarship, which was established through a grant to the Acoustical Society Foundation in 1998, honors the memory of Professor Raymond H. Stetson, a pioneer investigator in phonetics and speech science. Its purpose is to facilitate the research efforts of promising graduate students. Recipients have been:


Medwin Prize in Acoustical Oceanography

Application for 2011 Medwin Prize will be posted in Spring 2011

The Medwin Prize in Acoustical Oceanography was established in 2000 from a grant made to the Acoustical Society Foundation by Herman and Eileen Medwin to recognize a person for the effective use of sound in the discovery and understanding of physical and biological parameters and processes in the sea. Recipients have been:


Rossing Prize in Acoustics Education

Download Application for 2011 Prize

The Rossing Prize in Acoustics Education was established in 2003 from a grant made to the Acoustical Society Foundation by Thomas D. Rossing to recognize an individual who has made significant contributions toward furthering acoustics education through distinguished teaching, creation of educational materials, textbook writing and other activities. Recipients have been:


Robert W. Young Award for Undergraduate Student Research in Acoustics

Application for 2011 award will be posted in Summer 2011

A gift to the Acoustical Society Foundation made by the family of the late Robert W. Young in his honor has been established to grant undergraduate student research awards. Recipients have been:


Congressional Science and Engineering Fellowship

The American Institute of Physics in cooperation with the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) annually sponsors a scientist to spend a year providing analytical expertise and scientific advice to Congress. In turn, the program enables scientists to broaden their experience through direct involvement with the legislative and policy processes. Fellows gain a perspective which, ideally, will enhance not only their own careers but also the physics community’s ability to more effectively communicate with its representatives in Congress.

Research Grant in Speech Science

The Klatt Memorial Fund was created in 1989 jointly by the Acoustical Society of America's Technical Committee on Speech Communication and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation to create a research grant in speech science in honor of Dennis Klatt. The $5,000 Research Grant in Speech Science is designed to further research activities in the areas of speech communication for individuals having received a doctoral degree within the last 5 years. This grant is supported by the Dennis Klatt memorial fund. For information on how to apply for this grant, vist the ASHA Foundation at www.ashfoundation.org/Foundation/grants/research_grants.htm.
