Scholarship Opportunities

The Transformer Association 2024 Scholarship Program

The member companies of The Transformer Association (TTA) have established an academic scholarship program for the 2024-2025 academic year to support 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. TTA will award a scholarship based on academic merit and the applicant’s demonstrated experience and interest in the field of power conversion. The scholarship will be awarded in the form of a one-time grant of $2,500, based on the review of applications and the judgment of the TTA Scholarship Committee and Board of Directors.
