Acopian Power Supplies announced that Austin Park of Santa Cruz, California, has been named the winner of the first annual Acopian Power Supply Engineering Scholarship.

According to Acopian, the scholarship program was established to help talented engineering students, enrolled full-time in an undergraduate US college or university, pursue careers in power electronics or a related discipline.

Park, who recently received a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Electrical Engineering from UCLA with a grade point average of 3.9, will use the $1,000 scholarship towards tuition and other educational expenses at Stanford University, where he has been accepted into the Masters of Science (MS) program in Energy Resources Engineering.

“This is the first year an Acopian Power Supply Engineering Scholarship has been awarded,” said Alex Karapetian, director of sales and marketing for Acopian. “We are proud to have initiated this annual scholarship and demonstrate our commitment to help promote engineering careers; especially those that involve power engineering.”

To be considered for the scholarship, Acopian received applications from engineering students at colleges and universities across the country.  Acopian’s panel of judges selected the winner based on specific eligibility criteria, including a GPA of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale, and a letter of referral from an individual qualified to evaluate the applicant’s academic accomplishments.
