TiMOTION’s North American subsidiary recently announced its partnership with UNC Charlotte by making a $3,000 gift to the Exponential Campaign to support students in the William States Lee College of Engineering. The scholarships will benefit full-time engineering students of high academic standing.
“TiMOTION started this scholarship fund with two primary goals in mind,” said Jon Mueller, manager of the Business Development and Marketing department. “First, this scholarship program will provide current students with financial assistance while they pursue higher education. Secondly, the program will assist with educating future engineers about electric linear actuators as TiMOTION will provide products for classroom learning and projects.”
Researchers in the UNC Charlotte Center for Biomedical Engineering and Science will benefit greatly from this partnership, as they work with the equipment TiMOTION provides to the University.
The scholarship funding supports juniors and seniors. “This aligns with the Exponential Campaign goals to reduce student debt through scholarships,” said Senior Associate Dean in the Lee College of Engineering Dr. Ron Smelser. “We thank TiMOTION for helping upper-class students to make it to graduation with less debt.”
TiMOTION is an industry-leading provider of electric linear actuators worldwide, earning a reputation for reliable, high quality, and competitively priced products that satisfy the needs of medical, furniture, ergonomic, and industrial markets globally. The company believes strongly in moving towards a better future, which includes investing in the engineers of tomorrow.
In addition to collaborating with UNC Charlotte, TiMOTION has also collaborated with four other universities in the Carolinas: Clemson University, East Carolina University, NC State University and Western Carolina University. In addition to these specialized scholarships, TiMOTION is also providing five additional third-party scholarships of $2,000 that are available for qualifying engineering students throughout the United States.
