The program, sponsored
by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and administered by the ACRP, is designed to encourage
applied research on airport-related aviation system issues and to foster the
next generation of aviation community leaders. Under the program, up to
ten awards of $10,000 each are made to full-time graduate students for successful
completion of a research paper on public-sector airport-related aviation
issues during the academic year.
Candidates must be full-time students
enrolled in a graduate degree program at a North American accredited institution
of higher learning during the academic year. Successful papers are presented
at the TRB Annual Meeting following completion of the program, and
exceptional papers have been published in subsequent volumes of the Transportation
Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board.
