AMG Structural Engineering Scholarship
Structural engineering is comprised of the analysis and design of deep and shallow foundation systems, and structures using steel, concrete, masonry, and timber. Structural engineers are an essential part of society's systems and infrastructures and AMG recognizes the importance of supporting tomorrow's engineers today. In honor of supporting tomorrow's engineers, AMG created the AMG Structural Engineering Scholarship.
The AMG Structural Engineering Scholarship was created to support tomorrow's outstanding structural engineers, as well as recognize the schools and teachers who have inspired and nurtured their aspirations. A $1,500 scholarship was awarded on October 19th, 2012 to the student that portrayed the highest qualifications. Each applicant had to be a full time student at a college or university, have a minimum of 3.0 GPA, and have a major related to Structural Engineering (Civil, Mechanical, etc.).
The winner of the scholarship was Grace Gosser, third year Civil Engineering student at the University of Toledo. Congrats to Grace!
Here is a short bio about Grace:
Grace Gosser is in her third year studying Civil Engineering at the University of Toledo. She plans on graduating in December of 2013 with her Undergraduate Degree. Grace is not only a full time student, working and studying hard to graduate a year early, but she also makes time to help her community. Whether it is tutoring grade-schoolers, raising money for the less fortunate or just volunteering her time, Grace is an active part in improving her community.
Upon graduation Grace plans on having passed her Fundamentals of Engineering exam and hopes to find a job in the Northern Ohio area in either the transportation or structural discipline of Civil Engineering. From there, she hopes to become a project manager overseeing the calculations on the designs of various structures and roads while obtaining her professional engineering license and LEED certification. She would like to see her knowledge put to good use and have a positive impact on everyone that comes in contact with her designs while continuing to help and volunteer in her community.
The commitment Grace shows to hard work and her community are the values we expect in the engineers of tomorrow and we wish her success in her future endeavors. Congrats again!
