Abstract: In April 2012, the IPA Council voted to establish a new support mechanism for student members of the IPA: the IPA Student Awards. Student members who will present their research at international conferences, symposia and workshops which are (co-)sponsored by the IPA may apply for these awards. Unemployed members, members under age 35, or members from low-income-level countries may also apply. IPA Student Awards are separate from the IPA's Gösta Bruce Scholarships, which are dedicated to supporting student travel to International Congresses of Phonetic Sciences. The number and amount of IPA Student Awards will be decided separately for each conference, and will depend on such factors as the funds available at the time, the number of students attending the conference, and the costs to students of attending. Selection of recipients will be made by the IPA Executive Council.
