Thornton Tomasetti Foundation Announces 2015 National Scholarship Winners

The Thornton Tomasetti Foundation has named Denisa Buzatu, Zachary Caamano-Withall and Adam Jesberger recipients of its fourth annual National Scholarship awards. Currently enrolled in Princeton University, University of California, San Diego and Pennsylvania State University, respectively, the three students will each receive $10,000 to pursue a master’s degree in structural engineering or architectural engineering.

The scholarship winners were chosen from 14 universities across the country. Candidates were nominated by a university dean or department chair, and graded on factors such as career goals, academic accomplishments, and demonstrated interest in the integration of structural engineering and architecture. Recipients must intend to make an impact on the structural design of buildings, and practice structural engineering in the building field upon completion of their degree requirements.

The Thornton Tomasetti Foundation jury, which reviewed the submissions, consisted of Foundation Board of Governors member Wayne Stocks, a managing principal in Thornton Tomasetti’s Washington, D.C. office, senior principals John Abruzzo of San Francisco, Calif., Faz Ehsan of Chicago, Ill., and Anjana Kadakia of Newark, N.J. and Director Tanya de Hoog of London, U.K.
