American Society of Civil Engineers Maryland Section Scholarship – The ASCE Maryland Section Scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate member of Johns Hopkins’ student chapter in recognition of outstanding academic merit and achievement in civil engineering.
Recipient: Brennan Hughes
Civil Engineering Achievement Award – The Civil Engineering Achievement Award recognizes outstanding academic achievement by graduating seniors in the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering.
Recipients: Muhie Dean Ahdab, Carlos Andrés Melendez, Margaret Smith
Civil and Systems Engineering Faculty Recognition Award – The Department of Civil and Systems Engineering faculty recognize that some students excel in the classroom while also actively participating in leadership and service opportunities in the broader community. We are proud to have these students represent the department.
Recipient: Sophia Haass
Robert H. Scanlan Award – Robert H. Scanlan was a tireless researcher who made scholarly contributions to both theory and practice in the fields of engineering mechanics, aerodynamics, and the aeroelasticity of civil engineering structures. Scanlan worked in both the private and public sectors, abroad and in the U.S., as well as in academia. In 1984, at age 70, after a full career at Princeton, he joined the Johns Hopkins faculty. He remained an active faculty member here, aiding the Department of Civil Engineering and its faculty, staff, and students, until his passing in 2001. Scanlan brought an indefatigable spirit to his work and made indelible contributions to wind engineering and to the study of bridge aerodynamics—topics that are critical to structural engineering practice. This award is presented to a student who demonstrates an interest in making connections between engineering research and practice.
Recipient: Cassandra Mitsinikos
Gerard H. Schlimm Award – The Gerard H. Schlimm Award is given to an undergraduate student for exceptional accomplishments in the field of civil engineering. As a longtime Senior Lecturer and Director of the Part-Time and Special Programs at the Whiting School from 1966 to 1994, the late Dr. Schlimm made many contributions to the education of future engineers.
Recipient: Timothy Carlson
American Society of Highway Engineers Chesapeake Section Scholarship – This award is given to a sophomore or junior undergraduate student interested in pursuing a career in transportation, highway engineering, construction or a related field.
Recipient: Daniel Ardila
