The road to scholarships

Auburn University civil engineering students Daniel Lowell and Nicole Reed were selected to receive the 2018 Barton S. Mitchell Memorial Asphalt Industry Scholarship. This annual scholarship is aimed to support full time undergraduate students studying engineering with special interest in those wishing to pursue a career in civil engineering.

Daniel and Nicole have each completed three semesters as a part-time laboratory technicians at NCAT through Auburn’s cooperative education (co-op) program and recently participated in the asphalt mix design competition sponsored by CRH Americas Materials, Inc. Co-op students at NCAT help to improve the overall quality of results coming from the laboratory and Test Track and typically move on to careers in the asphalt pavement industry after graduation.
