This program emphasizes training, mentoring, research, and preparing students for graduate studies & careers in acoustics. Your support of SURIEA will inspire the next generation of acousticians and make the field of acoustics more inclusive, diverse, and welcoming. Please review the sponsorship opportunities below. The program will welcome approximately 10 – 20 students.
