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, most of whom have since gone on to prominent and successful careers in the profession. Applications are accepted from students world-wide, and Foundation grants have provided a measure of financial support for studies at major universities in many countries.

All applicants are required to have met several 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 a related field supported by a written application and recommendations by at least two faculty members.
– Acceptance or a pending application for graduate academic studies leading to a masters or higher degree, or an internationally recognized equivalent.

Awards are made annually, in August, and recipients may apply for a one-time renewal after the successful completion of at least one-year of graduate studies. Payments for the original award or the renewal will be sent directly to the graduate school on behalf of the student’s account.
