Please read the following material carefully before applying for financial support at the link given below.

Requests for support may be made until 11:59 pm March 27, 2019 (local time of person submitting) but earlier application is encouraged since we will try and give out some funds sooner if we can.

We invite individuals who potentially need support to attend AN2019 to make requests at the link below. We anticipate a lower level of external funding for the meeting than in the past due to international financial issues.  Thus, we expect that no one is likely to get full support to attend the meeting.  Therefore, it is critical that anyone asking for support has options to obtain additional support elsewhere.

Highest priority for financial support will be given to students, postdocs, young investigators, and colleagues from developing countries, but others are welcome to apply and we will do our utmost to provide some support to as many people as our funding will allow.

Criteria for support:

  1. Must be FIRST author on an abstract.
  2. If funds are awarded, a full paper must be submitted to either Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA) or the meeting’s special in The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA). Until the paper is submitted and accepted, there will be no reimbursement.

We will announce awarding of support by mid-April.  HOWEVER, students (graduate and undergraduate students) and postdocs will receive notification of meeting registration support (but not for travel) by April 1 so they can register without having to lay out funds for the registration fee.

Individuals wishing to request financial support may do so even before abstract submission or registration for the meeting. However, we will not make an offer of support (other than for student registration) until your abstract is submitted and you have registered.

Please also note that any awarded financial support (other than for registration if awarded), cannot be paid out until after the meeting. We will do our utmost to ensure that you receive reimbursement as soon after the meeting as possible. You will need receipts for travel, hotel, food, etc. in order to get reimbursed for awarded expenses.
