Anita B Lawrence PhD Scholarship in Acoustics 

Drone operations in and around the built environment is an evolving industry.  While considerable efforts are being made, via engineering design, to reduce the noise from drones, there are many unknown aspects of the effect of the noise from drone operations in and around communities.  Consequently there is a need for an understanding of the effects of the introduction of the new transportation noise source into the Australian community and what methods are appropriate for managing that noise to maintain the health and wellbeing of the community.

The Anita B Lawrence scholarship is available for an interested student to undertake a relevant study with supervision from both the School of the Built Environment and School of Aviation. Government agencies are particularly interested in fostering research in this area and are willing to provide mentoring and access to related information.

The scholarship is available for application by national and international students with suitable qualifications. It provides an annual stipend for general living costs at AU$30,000 per annum, a research allowance of AU$5,000 per annum plus a Tuition Fee Scholarship for international students.

Further details on the scholarship and the application process are available from here.
