IPA Student Awards

The IPA has established a support mechanism for its student members participating in IPA-sponsored conferences to present their research – the IPA Student Awards. Three such awards are available to student members of the IPA attending the PaPE 2017 conference. These awards will take the form of a reimbursement of the early-bird student registration fee.

Applications for these awards are now invited from student IPA members who are presenting their work at PaPE 2017 (as either an oral or a poster presentation). In accordance with the IPA scheme, applications are also invited from unemployed members of the IPA, members under 35, and members from low-income-level countries: https://www.internationalphoneticassociation.org/content/grants

Applications should be sent to the IPA Secretary at secretary@internationalphoneticassociation.org by midnight (AoE) 16th April. Please enter PaPE2017 Student Award Application in the subject line.

Applications should consist of a front sheet itemising the name/address/affiliation/IPA membership number of the applicant, together with the abstract which has been accepted by the conference:

  • the abstract may be singly-authored or co-authored with one or more other researchers. The abstract should bear full authorship and affiliation details
  • members who have previously received an IPA Award for a previous conference are not excluded from applying for an award for PaPE2017

Applications will be considered by the IPA Council’s Committee on Conference Sponsorship & Student Awards, and the outcomes will be announced by 15th May.

Award recipients should pay their registration as normal and the awardees would be reimbursed once they have provided the IPA Treasurer with a receipt for their registration fee and a photo of them at the conference, which the IPA will post to its Facebook site following the conference.
