The T.Y. Lin Award is annually presented by the Structural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Professor T. Y.

He endowed the award to ASCE in 1968 to recognize outstanding engineers and their contributions to the field of prestressed concrete. The award is presented to the best paper written or coauthored by members of ASCE in the various publications of ASCE, PCI, and the American Concrete Institute during a 12-month period.
