Young Corrosion Professional Award
This award subsidises attendance at the annual ACA conference to a value of up to AU$3,500 for a ‘young corrosion professional’ either working or studying in a corrosion related field within Australia or New Zealand. Funded by the ACA Newcastle Branch, the award is open to undergraduate students, post-graduate students and those working in the corrosion industry from across the ACA membership that meet the criteria of young professional status (under the age of 35) in the ACA.
Applicants are required submit an application outlining their technical background and including a short abstract of their research or area of interest. This may be based on (but is not limited to) a research or field project, item of particular local or historical relevance or industrial case study. Selected applicants will be invited to present their work to the judging panel (15 - 20 minutes) from the ACA Newcastle Branch committee.
Applications will be open during February - April each year. The Newcastle Branch will advise those applicants invited to speak to the Newcastle judging panel during May - August each year. Please refer to the YCP Award Guidelines for details.
