The Australian Acoustical Society (AAS) Education Grant has been established to encourage and enhance the study of acoustics in Australia and in particular to encourage research in acoustics. The main criterion is the likely benefit that the successful completion of the proposed project will provide for acoustics, for the AAS and for its members.
Examples of projects likely to be viewed favourably include:
- one whose outcomes would enable a significant number of AAS members to resolve community or environmental problems more satisfactorily;
- one which involves collaboration between education/research institutions and industry based organisations;
- one which would produce good publicity for the AAS and for the science and practice of acoustics in Australia;
- one which enhances the quality or quantity of educational offerings in acoustics in Australia.
Funding & Duration
The total grant of $15,000.00 may be split between several projects. Thus applicants should not assume that they would necessarily receive all the available funding if their application was successful and should not necessarily request the maximum amount of the award.
The grant is open to educational institutions, companies and organisations and individuals for the purpose of financing special acoustic projects, providing scholarships, assisting projects with the purchase of software and equipment or any other worthwhile use involving acoustics.
Applications for the purchase of software and equipment by government and commercial organisations will be considered on a case by case basis but may be considered unfavourably unless consideration is given to hiring equipment.
Submission Requirements & Internal Due Date
Applications must be submitted for internal review by 24 July 2015.
Submitted applications must be accompanied by a signed and completed copy of the University’s Grant Application Cover Sheet.
Applications may be emailed to the Research Branch unless otherwise specified.
