IPA Student Awards 2020-2021

The International Phonetic Association is offering IPA Student Awards to student members of the Association presenting or attending conferences (virtual or physical) during the academic year 2020-2021. Student members of the Association attending international conferences/symposia/workshops on the phonetic sciences are eligible
to apply. Proof of student status needs to be submitted with the application.

Awards will cover the student registration fees up to a maximum of 200 Euros per award. For conferences taking place in Autumn 2020, the early bird or standard fees will be funded; for events in 2021, the early bird registration fees will be covered. The IPA aims to support as many students as possible within the budget allocated for Student Awards. Priority will be given to students presenting their research at conferences; for students participating at conferences as auditors, awards will be made on a first come, first served basis. Applications for IPA membership can be lodged via our website at:

This same web-page gives a full list of member benefits. To apply for an Award, eligible members of the IPA should send to the Secretary (Gerry Docherty, secretary@internationalphoneticassociation.org) and to the Chair of the Conference Sponsorships and Student Awards Committee (Katerina Nicolaidis, knicol@enl.auth.gr) an email that states their name, current academic affiliation, proof of student status, and the name and email address of an academic supervisor. For students presenting their research, the email should be accompanied by the abstract that has been accepted for presentation. The registration fees will be reimbursed after the completion of the event and upon receipt of confirmation of participation at the conference. This will include photographs or screenshots that can be posted on the IPA social media.
