The Daniel B. Fambro Student Paper Award is awarded annually for a significant paper prepared by a student member of ITE. The award honors the work of Daniel B. Fambro, who was a professor at Texas A&M University and an associate research engineer at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute and passed away in 1999. In naming the award in Dan’s honor, ITE recognizes his exemplary service to ITE, and his dedication to his students and the profession. The award provides ITE a means to encourage student members to conduct and report on independent and original research and investigate transportation subjects. The Dan Fambro Award recognizes outstanding accomplishment in this area and shines a spotlight on young and talented transportation researchers.
The Michigan Section awards $500 for first place and $300 for second place. The deadline for submitting paper to me for the Michigan award is February 10.
