Jesus Molina has been named one of 24 Class of 2022 Minority Student Fellows by the Transportation Research Board (TRB).

Molina is an undergraduate student at FIU’s College of Engineering and Computing pursuing a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering.

“We are very proud of Jesus and feel fortunate to have such a stellar student representing FIU’s College of Engineering and Computing before the TRB,” said Arindam Gan Chowdhury, professor and chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. “Jesus is dedicated, hardworking and an inspiration to all. We are proud of his willingness to undergo the rigor of conducting TRB research and presenting his findings before the board as a representative of FIU.”

As part of its commitment to increasing diversity and inclusiveness in transportation, the TRB Minority Student Fellows Program funds students from minority-serving Institutions to attend and present their research at the TRB annual meeting and help them engage in TRB’s network of transportation professionals.

“TRB is pleased to welcome the 13th cohort of Minority Student Fellows. Since 2010, over 200 scholars have come through the program to present their research and participate in all aspects of our annual meeting,” said Neil Pedersen, executive director of TRB. “These students have benefitted not only from presenting their research but also from networking with and learning from the top transportation researchers and professionals in the world.”
