Brown & Caldwell awarded five $1,000 scholarships to University of Guam civil engineering and environmental science students on Sept. 9. The scholarships were the last set to be awarded of a five-year collaborative program between the University and the engineering firm.
“Brown & Caldwell is very committed to the University,” said John Riegel, senior manager of program management for the company. “We are firm believers in developing that knowledge and that skill base here locally to keep it here.”
The awardees are the top students in the civil engineering program, said Interim Dean Shahram Khosrowpanah of the School of Engineering, and they will be among the first to graduate from the program, which officially started this semester.
“We’re very proud of the students and the work they’re doing and the commitment it takes to finish a degree,” said UOG president Thomas W. Krise.
To date, the firm has awarded $25,000 to UOG students pursuing degrees in the sciences.
