The Transportation Research Board’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) today announced winners of its annual Graduate Research Awards. The prestigious awards focus on applied research on airport and related aviation system issues to help the public sector continue to improve the quality, reliability, safety, and security of the U.S. civil aviation system.
ACRP Graduate Research Awards stimulate thought, discussion, and research by those who will become part of the future airport industry workforce. Now in its 14th year, the program is sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) through ACRP and managed by the Virginia Space Grant Consortium. This year’s 12 graduate student awardees represent nine universities from across the U.S. Their research focuses on a wide variety of topics including pavements, urban air mobility, and environmental sustainability.
