Proud to support Colorado State University’s (CSU) College of Engineering students, this year’s Baseline Engineering Scholarship was awarded to Tetiana Rivkina. A committee appointed by the Dean of the Scott College of Engineering selected Tetiana based on the scholarship’s criteria:
- Full-time undergraduate student within the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering
- Major in Civil/Environmental Engineering
- Minimum overall 2.75 GPA
- Preference given to students from rural communities covering a six-state region.
According to Susheela Mallipudi, Department Coordinator/Graduate Advisor, “Tetiana is from the Ukraine and is a first generation college student. She has great vision and aspires to be a leader within the civil engineering community. She wants to be a force for efficient change while optimizing processes in areas of manufacturing and building. Her long-term career goal is to be a structural engineer and design skyscrapers, residential neighborhoods or business centers. Tetiana gives back to her community by volunteering to teach basic Russian language skills to others. She has a desire and passion to give back to others while also increasing the literacy of others.”
Baseline Corporation’s Founder and President, John McLain, is a CSU graduate. He created the scholarship to encourage students to pursue careers in civil and environmental engineering. “Baseline has been a wonderful supporter of CSU engineering students for many years,” says CSU’s Director of Development, Matthew Carlyon.
The deadline for next year’s scholarship is March 1, 2018. Students can access more information on CSU’s website.
