AES Educational Foundation, Audio Precision establish Tom Kite Scholarship

'Advancing Audio' will "preserve Tom’s legacy and support innovative AES graduate students"

The Audio Engineering Society’s Educational Foundation has announced the establishment of ‘Advancing Audio – The Tom Kite Scholarship’, offered annually to “graduate student AES members who have a passion for advancing audio through innovation and technology development”.

It is named in honour of the late Tom Kite, PhD, an active AES member and vice-president of engineering at Audio Precision, the scholarship’s sponsor. Dr Kite was a key contributor to the development and evolution of its flagship audio analyser line, the APx500 series.

“Tom was devoted to innovation in audio test and measurement, [and] to the advancement of education,” says Dave Schmoldt, Audio Precision’s CEO. “Sponsoring an Audio Engineering Society scholarship in his name is a natural way for AP to honour Tom’s legacy and benefit future generations in a field that Tom so deeply cared about.”

Applications for Advancing Audio – The Tom Kite Scholarship must be received by AES’s headquarters by 15 May.

Don Puluse, president of the AES Educational Foundation (pictured, right, with Schmoldt), says: “The AES Educational Foundation is honoured to offer this Audio Precision scholarship named for Tom Kite, a much admired and respected member of AES. This grant will preserve Tom’s legacy and support innovative AES graduate students interested in advancing research in audio measurement, analysis or perception.”
