Thornton Tomasetti Foundation Announces 2018-19 Scholarship and Fellowship Winners

The Thornton Tomasetti Foundation has awarded six college students — Bowen Plogmann, Sophie Sisson, Joanna Zou, Fei Ding, Longxi Luo and Catherine Wolfe — with scholarships and research fellowships for use during the 2018-19 academic year.

This year marks the introduction of the Technical Literacy Fellowship, an award given to students graduating from a U.S. university or college who are either entering or currently enrolled in a master’s or Ph.D. program. The fellowship offers funding for specific projects that further the technical literacy of the public at large, especially regarding extreme loading events, wind performance, risk, reliability and the engineering processes that provide the foundation for all structures in the built environment.
