The Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) Educational Trust awarded two of the three Langan Engineering & Environmental Services Legacy Scholarships in December. The fund was established in 2015 with a $200,000 donation from Langan Engineering & Environmental Services and an additional contribution of more than $100,000 generously made by many principals of Langan.
The fund, which provides scholarships to civil engineering students focusing on geotechnical and/or environmental engineering, includes three scholarships honoring former distinguished members of Langan:
- The Bernard F. Langan Scholarship at Purdue University
- The Dennis J. Leary Memorial Scholarship at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
- The Donald J. Murphy Memorial Scholarship at NYU Tandon School of Engineering
The 2017 recipient of the $5,000 Bernard F. Langan Scholarship at Purdue is Ruben Tovar, a Ph.D. candidate in civil engineering. His research topic is the Effect of Particle Crushing on the Axial Capacity of Piles.
The 2017 recipient of the $5,000 Donald J. Murphy Memorial Scholarship at NYU Tandon School of Engineering is Hio Kuan “Elsa” Kong, an undergraduate student studying civil engineering with a minor in construction management. She is interested in pursuing a career in environmental engineering.
