Undergraduate Scholarship Winner
University of British Columbia (Okanagan)
I would like to thank the Canadian Technical Asphalt Association for awarding me with their undergraduate scholarship. This scholarship is a great help towards my tuition and will let me focus my energy into my Civil Engineering studies.
“Thank you CTAA for this award. I am entering my second year of my graduate studies at the University of New Brunswick. My research involves the use of recycled asphalt shingles as an additive to granular sub-base for road construction in the province of Prince Edward Island. If this research is successful it will reduce granular import costs for the province as well as reduce the volume of shingles that are buried in the province’s landfills each year. I thank you again for this award and ensure that it will be put to good use.”
