MILPITAS, Calif., Sept. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- e2v aerospace and defense (e2v a&d), a leading provider of technology solutions for high performance systems, is pleased to announce a scholarship program for eligible employees and dependents. The program will award two scholarships per academic year, and is intended to encourage pursuit of higher education in areas of study that align with e2v's core competencies and values.
Earlier this year, e2v a&d started an internship and co-op program with several universities in the Silicon Valley area, with plans to expand beyond the local region to other nationally ranked universities. These various programs and the scholarship program are part of a strategic initiative at e2v to develop, enhance and contribute to a better-educated workforce that is prepared to lead with technical innovation and creative ideas.
"Education is the cornerstone of a professional career," stated e2v a&d President Robert Brevelle in announcing the program to employees.

It is in our collective best interest to have a diverse and educated team to help us meet the exciting challenges and opportunities of the future."
Robert shared that he would not have been able to attend college had it not been for the scholarship programs of several organizations and corporations that not only fully funded his undergraduate program but also his graduate and doctoral studies. "Like many of my colleagues, we were able to attend college due to the generosity of companies and programs such as this one, and like them, we are committed to supporting higher education and academic excellence."
