Civil engineering student Luke Greenwood has earned the American Concrete Institute Foundation’s Future Concrete Industry Leader Fellowship for his leadership abilities and past experiences in structural engineering and design.

Junior Luke Greenwood has earned the American Concrete Institute Foundation’s Future Concrete Industry Leader Fellowship, one of the nation’s most coveted honors for an undergraduate civil engineering student. It recognizes his leadership abilities, past experiences in structural engineering and design, and desire to become an effective concrete industry leader in the future.

The fellowship features a $10,000 educational stipend, paid travel expenses and attendance fees to two ACI conventions, a summer internship, and assistance in finding an industry mentor.

“This fellowship will be so impactful since it lifts a huge financial burden from my shoulders,” said Greenwood. “Another amazing benefit is the assistance in finding an industry mentor to offer guidance as I enter the workforce. This will assist in initiating valuable connections and establishing myself as an engineer in the concrete industry. I hope to one day be in the position to return the favor.”

The Indianapolis native will stay in his hometown this summer as an intern with TLF Engineers, working alongside structural engineers to learn about the design of a variety of structures. This will build upon experiences as an intern with Fishers, Indiana-based RQAW Corporation, where he assisted in county bridge inspections, writing initial reports for new projects, and performing necessary quantity calculations.

At Rose-Hulman, Greenwood is taking courses this spring in structural steel design, bridge engineering, and an introduction to environmental engineering. He also is a resident assistant within the institute’s residence life operations, a member of the Cecil T. Lobo student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and officer of the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship student organization.

The ACI Foundation promotes progress, innovation, and collaboration and is a wholly owned and operated non-profit subsidiary of the American Concrete Institute. Student fellowships and scholarships are facilitated by the ACI Foundation’s scholarship council.
