The Transformer Association Scholarship Program is available thanks to the member companies of The Transformer Association (TTA) who have established it to support qualified students.
The scholarship amount is $2,500 and there will be only one lucky winner each year.
The winners of the TTA will be determined based on academic merit and the applicant’s demonstrated experience and interest in the field of power conversion and the final decision will be made by the TTA Scholarship Committee and Board of Directors.
The Transformer Association Scholarship Program is available only to those qualified students enrolled in degree programs who have exhibited an interest in transformers or power conversion design through course work or other activities, and who might be considering a career in the transformer industry.
Ineligible applicants should not waste their time applying, as they will be rejected.
