Russ Brennan, Silicon Labs’ former CFO, built a legacy based on integrity and hard work. He was committed to prudent financial management and was a valued business partner to the CEOs and management teams with whom he worked. His strong global business acumen and commitment to open dialog and honesty characterized his actions. In addition to his professional accomplishments, Russ also felt strongly about mentoring. Silicon Labs’ $25,000 scholarship fund honors that spirit and is dedicated to furthering the education of young people.
The Russ Brennan Memorial Scholarship Fund can be awarded to high school seniors who plan to enroll in a full-time, four-year U.S. college or university undergraduate program, or students currently attending a U.S. college or university undergraduate program, are in good standing, and are focused on preferred majors in the fields of finance, economics, accounting, science or engineering. Qualifying candidates must be the children, younger siblings, nieces/nephews, or cousins of employees, or must be currently employed as a Silicon Labs intern. The scholarship can be awarded in its entirety to one student or divided and awarded to multiple candidates at the committee's discretion. The scholarship is payable directly to a four-year college or university upon confirmation of enrollment.
