The Audio Engineering Society Educational Foundation is dedicated to encouraging the entry of talented students into the profession of audio engineering and related fields. Since its establishment in 1984, the Foundation has awarded grants for graduate studies to exceptional applicants, many of whom have gone on to prominent and successful careers in the profession. Applications are accepted from students worldwide. All applicants are required to have met these criteria: * The successful completion of an undergraduate degree program (typically four years) at a recognized college or university. * A demonstrated commitment to audio engineering (or related field) as a career choice. * Acceptance or a pending application for graduate studies leading to a masters or higher degree, or an internationally recognized equivalent. Awards are made annually, in August, and a recipient may apply for one-time renewal after the successful completion of at least one year of graduate studies. Payment will be sent directly to the graduate school on behalf of the students tuition account. The applicant will be responsible for submitting a complete application package which includes two current letters of recommendation, one of which must be from the applicants major professor or academic advisor, and the second from another faculty member or a distinguished professional in the field. Recommendations should attest to applicants suitability for graduate studies in audio engineering or a related field. Request for a renewal grant should be made by a letter which summarizes applicants achievements during the past year of graduate studies. The request must be accompanied by two letters of recommendation, one of which must be from the students major professor or advisor. Recommendations should attest to the applicants satisfactory progress toward the degree. Applications, recommendations and other materials must be typewritten or printed clearly. Elaborate presentations or CDs (which cannot be photocopied) will not be accepted. Email may be used for informal communications but not for applications or letters of recommendation. Incomplete applications, late applications and applications for vocational training will not be considered or acknowledged.
