The Federal Highway Administration has awarded selective Eisenhower Transportation Fellowships to three School of Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate students this year, supporting their work to improve travel forecasting models, rural transit services, and road safety.
When Kathrine Udell stepped on campus at Georgia Tech a few months ago, it was already familiar ground. Udell spent much of her senior year at Kennesaw Mountain High School working on a research project with School of Civil and Environmental Engineering Ph.D. student Atiyya Shaw. In fact, she’d been so active in the work that she already has two published academic papers to her name. Not exactly the typical starting resume for an undergraduate student.
Last week was a good one for first-year Ph.D. students Atiyya Shaw and Brittany Suttner. The pair of School of Civil and Environmental Engineering students learned they’d won graduate research fellowships from the National Science Foundation, some of the most coveted funding for graduate students.
