Four undergraduates in The City College of New York’s Grove School of Engineering have been awarded 2015 Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowships by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The awards total $30,000, which is the largest amount awarded to City College students in a single year by the program.

The program’s mission is to attract qualified students to the field of transportation and research, and to advance transportation workforce development.

The CCNY recipients, all seniors majoring in civil engineering, their awards and research projects are:

  • Sallem Ahmed, a $10,000 fellowship to work with Dr. Michel Ghosn on research examining the impact of overweight trucks on highway pavements;
  • Lisa Chauvet and Medwin Chiu, $7,500 fellowships each to work with Dr. Alison Conway on research examining the impacts of New York's growing bicycle infrastructure on freight operations in the city; and
  • Stefanie Reichman, a $5,000 fellowship to work with Dr. Ardavan Yazdanbakhsh on research examining the potential use of construction and demolition waste in concrete production.

Conway, the Eisenhower fellowships’ campus program manager at CCNY, said all four recipients have already proven themselves as talented researchers through LSAMP, NSF STEP, and other faculty supported research.
