Young Investigator Award
The Committee on Women in Acoustics sponsors a Young Investigator Travel Grant program to assist with travel costs associated with presenting papers at ASA meetings. These grants are aimed at young professionals who have completed their doctorates in the last five years (not currently enrolled as a student), who plan to present a paper at an ASA meeting, and have not previously received the award. Awards are presented by check at the WIA luncheons at meetings. The Committee grants a maximum of four awards at each meeting. Applicants should submit a request for support, a copy of the abstract they have submitted for the meeting and a current resume/vita which provides information on their involvement in the field of acoustics. Submission deadline is usually nine weeks before each meeting. Both men and women may apply. See a meeting program about the details.
DEPENDENT CARE SUBSIDIES
The Committee on Women in Acoustics is sponsoring a Dependent Care Subsidy to help with dependent care costs associated with attending ASA meetings. Meeting attendees are eligible to apply if they plan to present a paper at an ASA meeting or hold a leadership position in ASA. Each subsidy will be of the order of $500 with four awards anticipated. Both men and women may apply. Applicants should submit paragraph describing how the funds would assist their dependent care expenses, a copy of the abstract for their presentation at the meeting and/or a paragraph describing their leadership position in ASA. See a ASA meeting program about the details.
