Architecture Graduate Student Kai Hansen Wins High-Rise Building Scholarship

Master of Science student Kai Hansen has been selected as the 2012 recipient of the Chicago Committee on High-Rise Buildings Scholarship in recognition of his thesis research.

“The number of applications received in this year’s competition were very good, and the decision to select one winner was not an easy one,” said Charles Carter, Chair of the CCHRB Scholarship Task Force. “Mr. Hansen prevailed on the strength of his accomplishments, plan of study, and letters of recommendation.”

The Chicago Committee on High Rise Buildings (CCHRB) is a not-for-profit organization founded to investigate problems or enhancements; support research and disseminate information for economic design; construction; operation and rehabilitation of high rise buildings. The $5,000 annual scholarship program supports eligible students at any college or university with an alumnus who serves as a member of the CCHRB.
