Semtech Funds $20K In Annual Scholarships

Looking to give back to the community, Camarillo-based Semtech, a manufacturer of analog and mixed signal semiconductors, said today that it is establishing a $20,000 a year scholarship fund, for college bound students in Ventura and Los Angeles counties. Semtech said it will fund the scholarship every year via the California Community Foundation (CCF) in Los Angeles, and the Ventura County Community Foundation (VCCF). The scholarship will go to assist low-income, graduating high school seniors in the two counties. Semtech said it will award four scholarships of $5000 each, two in each county, to students seeking undergraduate degrees in physics, engineering, chemistry, math, or business. The scholarships also give special consideration to female and foster children.
