The AES Educational Foundation was established in 1984 to encourage the entry of talented students into the profession of audio engineering and related fields. Grants for graduate studies with emphasis on audio topics are awarded annually. Recipients are selected on the basis of demonstrated talent and achievement and on faculty recommendation. Since its inception, the AESEF has presented grants to 200 students at nearly 60 universities worldwide. Grants have been made possible by contributions from AES, Inc.; the estate of John K. Hilliard; JBL, Inc.; the Mix Foundation for Excellence in Audio; and from John Eargle’s Estate and the family of David Smith. We have also received support from other benefactors, such as in-memoriam donors.
Application forms and additional information are available from the Audio Engineering Society, 60 East 42nd Street, New York, NY 10165, USA, or on its web site: www.aes.org/education/foundation/.
