Acoustical Society of New Zealand Conference Fund

The object of the ASNZ is "to promote the science and practice of acoustics in all its branches".

One of the best ways we can do this is to support our members who wish to attend acoustic symposia – particularly if they are presenting a paper on research they have conducted. 


ASNZ has established a fund of up to $5,000 NZD per annum, to be allocated by the ASNZ Council.


It is available to all who hold an ASNZ membership (Members, Affiliates and Fellows), but preference will be given to student applications, and those living full-time in New Zealand.  The fund is intended as a contribution towards conference costs, rather than paying them in full.

The amount for each application will be capped as follows:

  • $500 NZD for conferences held in New Zealand (including our own biannual conferences)

  • $1,500 NZD for conferences held overseasSuccessful applicants for overseas conferences may be required by the ASNZ Council to represent the Society at official functions in person such as Annual General Meetings.


Note that if a successful applicant does not attend the conference in due course, any received funds are to be repaid to the ASNZ. 


There are two funding rounds per year, as follows:

  • 15 May deadline for conferences held between July and December of the same year.  Recipients will be announced by 30 May

  • 30 September deadline for conferences held between January and June the following year. Recipients will be announced by 31 October
