One thought on “Eben Tisdale Fellowship, Washington, D.C.

  1. Dear Jonathon

    I am Sharmistha Chowdhury from Bangladesh. Currently I am working as a Structural Engineer(Civil Engineering) in a reputed private firm in real estate & construction sector. I have a strong academic background in my field & always try to enrich it with my working experience through day by day learning. I always believe that engineers have so many responsibilities for the society hence it is a prerequisite for them to also learn about the socio aspect implication of their knowledge.

    It will be a great pleasure for me if I would achieve this fellowship.

    Am I eligible to apply for this fellowship?

    Thank you.

    Best regards

    Engr. Sharmistha Chowdhury
