The Leo Casagrande Memorial Fund was established in 1990 in honor of Dr. Leo Casagrande. The purpose of the Fund was not specified, and from 1990 to 1999, it went unused. In November of 1999, the Geotechnical Executive Committee was charged with the management of the fund. A scholarship is presented annually to a full-time graduate student studying geotechnical engineering. The Geotechnical Group decided to make an initial donation of $1,000, and to use some of the profits from its next several lecture series to bolster the Fund. The Board unanimously approved the motion.
Currently, the Geo Institute Boston Chapter oversees the use of the fund to ensure it is utilized for its intended purpose.
