Henry E. Bass Basic Acoustics Summer School

The BASS 2021 EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROGRAM.
The program will take place June 7 – July 30, 2021. Application deadline is April 15, 2021.

The 2021 Basic Acoustics Summer School Program (BASS) will celebrate its 12th year this summer. The program was first created in memory of Dr. Henry E. Bass, who was a physicist and acoustics researcher that led efforts to create the National Center for Physical Acoustics (NCPA) in the 1980s and served as the Center’s director from 1992 until his passing in 2008. He was a talented researcher and a gifted teacher. Up-to-date, 20 undergraduate students from various backgrounds and universities have successfully completed the program.

The following are from the PDF announcement:

PURPOSE: The purpose of the Henry E. Bass Basic Acoustics Summer School (BASS) is to bring 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.

STUDENTS: The focus of BASS is on intermediate and advanced undergraduate students. A limited number of undergraduate students will be selected.

RESEARCH PARTICIPATION: 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, take training courses, and participate in discussion groups.

STIPEND: Participants will receive a $4,000 stipend. Participants provide their own housing and transportation to and from The University of Mississippi.

PROGRAM DATES: The Program will be held June 7, 2021 to July 30, 2021.

APPLICATION: The application can be downloaded from Bass Acoustics summer school website. There is no application fee. The deadline for submission is April 15, 2021. The application and required attachments should be submitted to Marta Panickar (mbp@olemiss.edu)
