A student in the UGA College of Engineering was awarded the Baker Student Fellowship by the American Concrete Institute Foundation. Scotty Smith, a senior civil engineering student from Duluth, is one of only two recipients of the international award for 2015-2016.
Smith’s undergraduate research has focused on examining the structural performance and environmental impact of increasing the allowable replacement levels of cement with fly ash for Georgia concrete pavements. Fly ash is a byproduct of coal-fired power plants.
ACI Foundation Fellowships are extremely competitive and open to undergraduate and graduate students studying engineering, construction management or other related fields.
