Andrew Young (CivE MASc candidate) received the 2019-2020 Donald Tong Graduate Scholarship in Structural Engineering at a ceremony hosted by DIALOG in Toronto on Tuesday, January 28, 2020. The scholarship was established in partnership with the University of Toronto to strengthen an already great relationship between DIALOG’s structural engineering team and the University’s engineering students and faculty.
About the Scholarship
The Donald Tong DIALOG Graduate Scholarship is intended to encourage students to pursue advanced study in structural engineering. It is awarded annually to a student enrolled in their first year of a graduate program within the Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering at the University of Toronto. The scholarship is for $5,000 payable at the end of the fall semester.
The scholarship is named for long-time structural team member Donald Tong who passed away after a courageous battle with cancer in 2018. Donald epitomized the integrated design culture at the heart of DIALOG and it is our hope this award inspires future structural engineers with some of Donald’s creative, wide ranging, design spirit.
