Award amount: $4,000 cash prize
Submission Deadline: May 20, 2019
The award is granted as a contribution to the education of a graduate student studying noise control engineering in the United States of America who proposes a project related to an application of noise control engineering and/or acoustical conditioning of architectural spaces. An application must be received for each candidate wishing to be considered for this award, which shall contain detailed information about the student and the proposed project including a commitment to publish the results of the project in a form suitable for the Noise Control Engineering Journal.
INCE-USA is pleased to announce a Student Paper Competition for NOISE-CON 2019, with up to 5 awards given to the most outstanding papers. The Winners of the Student Paper Competition Awards will receive $500 USD, plus an additional $500 award if they attend the NOISE-CON 2019 Awards Ceremony. If a winning paper is expanded and accepted after peer review for publication in the Noise Control Engineering Journal, the student will receive an additional $500 award.

INCE-USA is sponsoring a special session of seminal noise control papers open to students, "Classic Papers in Noise Control Engineering" for NOISE-CON 2019. Students will present on one of the classic papers listed in the entry form. An award will be given based on the student's presentation itself. The abstract should focus on the main thrust of the original paper and the focus of the presentation, which could also include additional work that has been done by the student presenter. The additional work could include reproduction of the results in the original paper, additional analysis, or influence of the original paper on subsequent research or noise control practice, etc. A winner, as determined by the INCE-USA judging panel, will receive $1000 if she or he attends the NOISE-CON 2019 Awards Ceremony.

This award is funded by the INCE Foundation through an endowment from the Michiko So Finegold Memorial Trust.
Hallberg Foundation Award for student travel
For the third year, INCE-USA is pleased to be able to offer the Hallberg Foundation award, supporting North American undergraduate or graduate students traveling to NC 2019 to present their work in any areas of noise control engineering. Multiple awards will be offered. As with the Michiko So Finegold Award, qualified students need to apply using the form available here, and applications will be processed as received, but must be submitted by July 25, 2019. This award is funded by the INCE Foundation through an endowment from the Elizabeth L. and Russell F. Hallberg Foundation.
Student volunteers are needed to provide back up support to the organizers and technical session chairs of NoiseCON 2019. Students will receive free registration in exchange for volunteer efforts. Past volunteer responsibilities have included assisting in technical sessions, registration, and/or paper upload room. This will be an excellent networking opportunity. Sessions will be assigned to match student interests and availability. Schedule will allow for activities such as paper presentations.
