Aspi Baria PhD Scholarship

Icon Water is proud to support the Australian National University’s (ANU) Aspi Baria PhD Scholarship to enhance the study of water related science in Australia.

The Aspi Baria PhD Scholarship was launched in May 2008 in memory of a renowned water scientist and well-renowned Icon Water manager.

This prestigious scholarship seeks to increase knowledge and expertise in water sustainability for the ANU and the water industry. The successful candidate will have a background and interest in chemical, environmental or engineering aspects of water quality and distribution.

ANU and Icon Water value diversity and inclusion and are committed to increasing the participation of women in non-traditional fields. Female researchers as well as researchers from diverse backgrounds, including Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders, people with disabilities, people from culturally diverse backgrounds and all ages are encouraged to apply.

The Icon Water and ActewAGL Perpetual Endowment Fund was established in 2009 with a donation of one million dollars each from Icon Water and ActewAGL. The Endowment Fund is ANU owned, and distributed under ANU delegation, and therefore cannot count as an industry cash contribution in external funding proposals.
