Henry E. Bass Basic Acoustics Summer School at Ole Miss
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 (must have completed sophomore year). Participation is limited to three undergraduate students.
LECTURERS AND DISCUSSION LEADERS: The Organizing Committee will select lecture topics and appropriate Lecturers and Discussion Leaders. The first week will include morning lectures on basic physical acoustics. After the first week discussion groups will be held one morning a week for the remainder of the program.
RESEARCH PARTICIPATION: Each student will be assigned a research advisor and a research topic for the program. The student is expected to be working in the lab during the normal 8:00 – 5:00 business day, when not in organized lectures and discussion groups. Full-time participation of all is required.
COSTS: Participants provide their own transportation to and from The University of Mississippi. There is no registration fee. Participants will receive a $2500 stipend and dormitory housing. Meal plans may be secured through The University of Mississippi (details will be provided with the application packet).
PROGRAM: The Program will be held June 4, 2012 – July 27, 2012. Program information will be provided to all those who request the Application Forms. Complete applications for the 2012 Summer School must be received no later than 15 April 2012.
