ASHRAE Awarding $173,000 in Grants-in-Aid to Students

ASHRAE yesterday said it has awarded $173,000 in grants for students' research in various fields, including one project to determine whether new standards for background noise levels should be set for designers of spaces used by hearing-impaired people. Nineteen students will get the grants from ASHRAE's grants-in-aid program, which is designed to encourage students to continue their education in preparation for service in the HVAC&R industry.

The recipients include Lauren Ronsse of the University of Nebraska, who will expand her study of whether people with hearing impairments respond similarly to people with no impairments to seven mechanical system background noise conditions. Jeremy Dreiling of Kansas State University will study indoor air quality in health care facilities with a focus on air cleaning methods and technology, and Benjamin Welle of the University of California, Berkeley, will look at the design of mixed-mode ventilation. Ian Bell of Purdue University received a grant-in-aid and also the 2006-07 Grant-In-Aid Life Member Club grant, which is given to the highest top-rated applicant and supported by a financial contribution from the club.

ASHRAE has more than 50,000 members and the mission of advancing heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world through research, standards writing, publishing, and continuing education. Visit www.ashrae.org for information.
