Acopian Power Supplies announced today that Ian Templeton of Ewing, New Jersey, has been named the recipient of the annual Acopian Power Supply Engineering Scholarship. The scholarship program was established to help talented engineering students, enrolled full-time in an undergraduate U.S. college or university, pursue careers in power electronics or a related engineering discipline.
Mr. Templeton is currently a junior at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) and is pursuing his BS in electrical engineering with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.8. He will use the $1,000 Acopian Power Supply Scholarship toward tuition, books and other educational expenses at TCNJ next semester. His specific areas of interest relate to designing new alternatives for generating clean energy and optimizing its efficiencies.
“Mr. Templeton’s stellar academic and extracurricular accomplishments, coupled with his focus on alternative clean energy sources, made him the obvious scholarship recipient,” said Alex Karapetian, director of sales and marketing for Acopian. “We are excited to see all the great things that are in Ian’s future path.”
