The LA Geo-Institute Chapter of ASCE is pleased to announce our intent to award two students with scholarships for the Fall of 2016 school year. The scholarships are directed to undergraduate seniors planning to enroll in a graduate-level geotechnical program in Fall 2016 and continuing graduate students. The scholarships are intended to encourage entry of accomplished students into the geotechnical profession. The selected individuals will have demonstrated a strong growth potential in geotechnical engineering as well as outstanding achievements in their school(s) and community. Details are available in the brochure below.
