Gordon F. Anderson Scholarship Awarded to Karren Hudson

Gordon F. Anderson Scholarship Awarded to Karren Hudson

Last week, we hosted our annual celebration of the Gordon F. Anderson Scholarship in our Edmonton studio. It’s always a great evening where the Edmonton structural engineering team and University of Alberta’s engineering faculty celebrate this year’s $5000 scholarship recipient and get to know the other applicants.

About the Scholarship
The Gordon F. Anderson Scholarship encourages students to pursue advanced study in structural engineering. It is awarded annually to a University of Alberta student entering the first year of a graduate program. It’s a great way for students to mingle with practicing engineers, and for DIALOG to connect with leading young minds who may become DIALOGers one day.

2019 Scholarship Recipient: Karren Hudson
Karren completed her Bachelor of Science degree at the U of A in 2018 with first class standing. She moved right into her MSc, starting with finite element modelling of reinforced masonry. She has worked as a teaching and research assistant at the university, along with student work terms in consulting practices around Edmonton. Her volunteer activities include mentoring young students, working at the Heritage Festival, and volunteering with her church.
Karren’s contribution to education and research, to her communities, and to the environment we all share reflect DIALOG’s values, which is why we selected her as this year’s recipient. Congratulations, Karren!

DIALOG + University of Alberta
We have a long standing history of collaboration with the University of Alberta. Fun fact: Seven of our Edmonton structural engineers are past Gordon F. Anderson Scholarship recipients! Of the Edmonton studio’s 23 structural engineers, 20 have at least one degree from the U of A and we hold a combined total of 32 U of A degrees!
