Congratulations to Dr. Bethany Cooper from Centre for Water Policy and Management at La Trobe University! She is the winner of the AAEA Trust/AARES Heading North Award. She will be joining AAEA in DC and presenting her paper "Heterogeneity of Australian Urban Water Customers: A Scale Extended Latent Class Choice Model Approach".
This award is supported by the AAEA Trust and the Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society. The AAEA Trust and AARES provide travel funding for a young professional from the United
States to attend the AARES Annual Meeting, as well as a young
professional from Australia or New Zealand to attend the AAEA Annual
Meeting. The winners of these scholarships (which are known as the
Heading North and Heading South awards) receive support from both the
Trust and AARES to offset the travel costs and registration fees
associated with attending each meeting.
