Foundation Fund

The Acoustical Society Foundation Fund consists of the assets of the former Acoustical Society Foundation and the ASA’s restricted and endowment funds. These funds support ASA’s scholarships, grants, fellowships, and other special programs. ASA is very grateful to its members and other contributors for their generous financial support and contributions over the years to the ASA and the Foundation Fund. That support has enabled the ASA to provide a wide variety of scholarships, grants, fellowships, and other assistance to help hundreds of acousticians in the pursuit of their research and thereby advance the field of acoustics.

If you believe in the Acoustical Society of America and the role it fulfills in the world of acoustics, you will want to make donations to the Acoustical Society Foundation Fund. Your contributions will support new and existing initiatives of the Acoustical Society of America. The Acoustical Society Foundation Fund accepts donations utilizing virtually all forms of donation and planned-giving instruments.

Campaign For Early Career Leadership

Supporting the Next Generation of Leaders

ASA Foundation Fund Launches Major Fundraising Campaign

A primary goal of the ASA Strategic Leadership Plan for the Future is to expand promotion and participation by early career members in academics, industry, government, and consulting. Recent activities toward achieving this goal included an Early-Career Acousticians held in conjunction with the spring 2016 ASA meeting in Salt Lake City, a newly-implemented Early Career Travel Award to support attendance by early career members at ASA meetings, and an initiative to broadcast ASA meeting content over the internet which can help early career members who cannot attend meetings to stay connected.>

To further support the next generation of scientists and dedicated leaders in acoustics and the ASA, a new fellowship program, ASA Early Career Leadership Fellows, has been developed.  Early career acousticians who are selected for these fellowships must show commitment to ASA and to new personal endeavors that will reward the Society and enhance their personal growth as future leaders at the same time.  The plan is to award two fellowships annually, each on the order of $6,000, to support activities that enhance the Fellows’ leadership skills and/or potential within their profession and within the ASA, as proposed by the applicants themselves.

The Acoustical Society Foundation Board has accepted the challenge of the fundraising campaign to support these Fellowships – named the Campaign for ASA Early Career Leadership: Supporting the Next Generation of Leaders – with a goal to raise $300,000 between October 2017 and May 2019

Contribution Categories

The contribution categories listed below reflect the desire to provide opportunities for all ASA members, new and old, to show their support to the Society, and to afford those with more resources the opportunities to be part of the future growth and envisioned future of the Society.

Contributions of any amount to the Campaign for ASA Early Career Leadership are now being accepted!
