Dr. Matthew W. Witczak Graduate Award

  • The Witczak Graduate Award in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Maryland has been created to honor Dr. Matthew Witczak. Dr. Witczak served as a graduate advisor and teacher on campus between 1973 and 1999 and during that time had a tremendous impact on his students. Dr. Witczak’s mastery of the material, organized mind, and devotion to students were a hallmark of his years on campus. In honor of Dr. Witczak, an endowed fund has been established to support scholarships to graduate students focusing on geotechnical engineering and pavement design. Visit the Witczak Graduate Award page for more information.
