Henry E. Bass Basic Acoustics Summer School scheduled at UM

The Henry E. Bass Basic Acoustics Summer School (BASS) brings undergraduate students, distinguished Research Scientists of the National Center for Physical Acoustics (NCPA) and Discussion Leaders together to explore a wide variety of topics in physical acoustics and engineering. BASS will give students opportunities to do research directed by experts, exploring topics that are not ordinarily encountered in the undergraduate experience.

The focus of BASS is on intermediate and advanced undergraduate students (must have completed sophomore year). A limited number of undergraduate students will be selected. Each student will be assigned a research advisor and a research topic for the program. The student will work in the lab, attend organized lectures, and participate in discussion groups.

Participants provide their own transportation to and from The University of Mississippi. There is no registration fee. Participants will receive a $3,000 stipend and dormitory housing, if needed.

The Program will be held June 4, 2018 to July 27, 2018. Program information will be provided to all those who request the application form.  Complete applications for the 2017 BASS must be received no later than  March 1, 2017.

Application forms may be requested from Marta Panickar, National Center for Physical Acoustics by phone at (662) 915-8868 or via e-mail at
