Congratulations to Owen Keenan, 15th winner of the Richard Kell Engineering Excellence Scholarship

Cardno scholarships help Cardno people grow. Winning the scholarship for Owen, a Structural Engineer from our Perth, Australia office, will allow him to continue to build on his capability as a future engineering leader and manager.

Owen also wishes to inspire those around him. "I hope to inspire my peers and younger engineers to take every opportunity to learn from the people around them and from the projects they are involved in."

The scholarship win gives Owen the chance to attend the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) global conference with fellow engineers from across the globe. He will also participate in FIDIC’s new Future Leaders Management certificate.

Congratulations also to Senior Water Engineer, Martin Griffin who was the Richard Kell Engineering Excellence scholarship runner up. Martin was awarded funding toward his professional development.

Richard Kell, whom the scholarship is named after, is looking forward to Owen attending and competing in the activities at the FIDIC conference.

“The Richard Kell Scholarship recipient has always made it to the final ‘showdown’ of the engineering design challenge at the FIDIC global conference, I look forward to seeing what Owen creates,” Richard said.

The Richard Kell Engineering Excellence Scholarship is just one of the scholarships that offer Cardno employees the chance to further their skills, see the world and make a difference while doing so.
