CUNews & Events
Abigail Kienzle, a junior from Albany, NY majoring in Civil Engineering, and a member of Clarkson’s Honors Program, was recently selected by the American Concrete Institute Foundation (ACI) for their prestigious ACI Concrete Practitioner Fellowship. It is one of several fellowships that ACI awards to students each year.
With this award, Abby will receive a $10k educational stipend, and sponsored trips to the next two biannual ACI conventions in Dallas, TX in October, and San Francisco, CA next March. She will also be connected with an industry mentor to foster her continued professional development. 
This fellowship was awarded in recognition of Abby’s superlative accomplishments in her undergraduate honors research on alternative sustainable cements and in recognition of her significant promise for future success as a researcher and engineer in the concrete industry.
