The Gösta Bruce Memorial Fund was established after Gösta Bruce, President of the IPA, passed away in June 2010.
The IPA would like to thank Gösta Bruce's family for the initiative to establish the fund and for their donation. Thanks are also extended to all the contributors to the fund. Among these are the editor and the contributors of the book "Prosody. Theory and Experiment. Studies Presented to Gösta Bruce", that was published as a tribute to Gösta on the occasion of his 50th birthday, who donated the royalties of the book to the memorial fund.

IPA Student Awards
The IPA has established a support mechanism for its student members traveling to conferences to present their research: the IPA Student Awards. These Awards may be offered to student members who will present their research at international conferences, symposia and workshops which are (co-) sponsored by the IPA. Unemployed members, members under age 35, or members from low-income-level countries may also apply. 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. Information about the availability of, and applying for, these Awards will be provided by conference organizers to student attendees.
