The contest was initiated in August 1998 and is designed to encourage
students, professors, State Highway Officials, and consultants from
around the world to get involved in using the LTPP data compiled by the
FWKA over the past 17 years. The database offers a unique opportunity
for everyone to work, individually or in teams, in the development of
papers, which will benefit transportation engineers and which will be
considered for awards.
FHWA will reserve
the right to publish the winning papers in an LTPP research document,
which will be available for free to anyone who desires a copy.
Applications are due March 31, 2014.
The amount of the award can be up to $4,000.00, depending on
funds available from the endowment. The successful applicant must submit
to ASCE proof of enrollment prior to receipt of the Fellowship.
The fellowship is a memorial to the outstanding professional
accomplishments and contributions of Jack E. Leisch, M. ASCE to the
fields of geometric design, traffic engineering and transportation
planning. The fellowship is supported by the income from donations in
Mr. Leisch's honor.
