2020 ABCD All Ohio Scholarship
Dear Civil Engineering and Associated Departments,
The Association for Bridge Construction and Design, comprised of the Northeastern Ohio Chapter (ABCD NEOH), Southwest Ohio Chapter (ABCD SWOH), and Central Ohio Chapter (ABCD COH) within the state of Ohio, is the only civil engineering society in Ohio dedicated solely to the construction and design of bridges. Our members include practicing bridge contractors and engineers, as well as civil engineering students. To further the educational mission of the association, ABCD NEOH, ABCD SWOH, and ABCD COH are offering scholarships to incoming junior or senior level civil engineering students. Two $1,000 scholarships and three $500 scholarships will be awarded. This year we are honoring Mike Lenett, PE, by naming one of the $1,000 scholarships in his honor.
Mike Lenett was a professional engineer in Ohio and Kentucky. He was a member of several engineering societies including The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the Association of Bridge Construction and Design where he was instrumental in helping start the Southwest Chapter. Mike was frequently invited to speak at engineering conferences around the country. Mike was a man of deep and redounding dedication. In both his professional and personal life, he was committed to living beyond himself. Mike passed away in September 2020 and this scholarship is in memory of Mike and all he provided to the bridge industry.
Interested candidates should forward a personal statement describing their interest in bridge design and construction, a completed application (see attached), as well as a transcript to ABCD COH. Scholarship applications will be accepted until November 30, 2020, and should be sent to:
