The SMTA is currently seeking student applications for two funds each with a deadline of April 24, 2020.

The $8000 Charles Hutchins Educational Grant, co-sponsored by the SMTA and CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY magazine, was established in memory of past SMTA president, educator, mentor, and industry colleague, Dr. Charles Hutchins. The SMTA has awarded over $100,000 to Hutchins Grant recipients since 1998!

Eligible applicants must be full time, graduate-level students pursuing a degree and working on thesis research in electronics assembly, electronics packaging, or a related field. Interested applicants should visit the Hutchins Grant page to review the eligibility criteria and the award program, and to complete an application:

The $3000 JoAnn Stromberg Student Leadership Scholarship, given in honor of the nearly 30 years of service dedicated by former Executive Administrator, JoAnn Stromberg, was established following her retirement in 2015. The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage students to take on more leadership opportunities and strengthen the connection between students and the electronics industry.

The Stromberg Scholarship is awarded annually to a full-time student pursuing a degree in electronics and actively involved in the SMTA. The scholarship is intended for the purchase of technical books and research materials, for participation in conferences related to electronics assembly and packaging, and for living expenses if necessary. Interested applicants should visit the Stromberg Scholarship page to review the eligibility criteria and the award program, and to complete an application:
