The National Committee on Water Engineering of Engineers Australia has created a Student Scholarship award to encourage young engineers to become members of Engineers Australia and to pursue a career in water engineering.
The award includes registration at an NCWE sponsored conference and part payment for travel and accommodation associated with attending the conference. The award also includes a certificate that will be presented during the conference. Up to three Scholarships are offered annually to final year engineering students.
The Scholarships are open to undergraduate students enrolled at an Australian university who are completing their final year of engineering studies in the year of the award, and who:
The NCWE encourages applications from women and indigenous Australians. Applications for the Scholarships should include the following:
The JD Lawson scholarship was established in 2015 by the National Committee on Water Engineering to allow developing professionals in the water industry to attend key industry events. The program acknowledges and promotes a Professional Engineer who is making an outstanding contribution in hydro-environmental engineering to his/her profession and professional community.
The scholarship is named after Emeritus Professor Jack Dempster Lawson in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the fields of hydraulic and water resources engineering. After working briefly with the Commonwealth Department of Works and for two years as a Research Hydraulic Engineer with the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Authority he joined the University of Melbourne as a Senior Lecturer then Reader in 1954. In 1970 he was appointed Professor of Civil Engineering, a position he held until his retirement in 1989. At the time of his death in 1991, he was the world President of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR).
The recipient will receive financial support to attend an IAHR World Congress. The prize will include financial support for flights and accommodation.
The scholarship recipient will be required to prepare a brief report on the benefits gained from his/her attendance at the Congress. This report is to be submitted to the Chair of the National Committee on Water Engineering (NCWE) of Engineers Australia.
A panel of members from the NCWE of Engineers Australia will judge the scholarship.
The National Committee on Water Engineering actively encourages applications from women and indigenous Australians.
The scholarship supports the attendance of an Engineers Australia member in a field of hydro-environmental engineering recognised by the IAHR.
The NCWE encourages applications from women and indigenous Australians.
