CSU partners with TransDigm to promote diversity in aerospace with scholarship fund
Cleveland State University formed a new partnership with TransDigm Group Inc., which will provide scholarship funds through the Doug Peacock Scholarship Program to support tuition and on-campus housing needs for female and underrepresented minority engineering and business students at CSU.
TransDigm, headquartered in Cleveland, is a global producer, designer and supplier of highly engineered aerospace components, systems and subsystems.
Over the course of five years, the Doug Peacock Scholarship Fund will provide more than 80 student awards in total. The annual scholarships are renewable for up to five years of the recipients’ undergraduate education and will be divided equally between CSU’s Washkewicz College of Engineering and the Monte Ahuja College of Business.
The scholarship program is named in honor of Doug Peacock, the founding CEO and Chairman of the Board of TransDigm. Peacock co-founded TransDigm along with Nick Howley in 1993.
