"We are thrilled to launch the ‘EPI Data Center Futurist Scholarship’ program and the $1 million investment shows we are serious about giving back to the community and do what we can to bridge the skills gap in the data center industry," said Edward van Leent, Chairman & CEO for the EPI Group of Companies."
In addition to initial investment, EPI is actively seeking sponsors to contribute additional funds to expand the scholarship program reach an even greater number of aspiring data center professionals. By joining forces with like-minded organizations and individuals, EPI aims to create a sustainable and impactful program that will empower individuals from diverse backgrounds to thrive in the data center industry.
“We believe that the ‘EPI Data Center Futurist Scholarship’ program will play an important role in shaping the future of the data center industry by empowering a new generation of skilled professionals.
