To increase attendance from the younger generation at major ARA conferences, the ARA offers scholarship opportunities  which provide successful entrants with a ticket to attend the conference and exhibition in full.

An issue, challenge or opportunity is selected and ideas are then sought from those 35 years and under to address the identified topic. A number of finalists are selected and each receive a ticket to the full Conference and Exhibition.

Each of the ideas proposed by the finalists are displayed as ‘poster papers’ at AusRAIL.
