Thomas R. Brown Distinguished Scholarships

The Thomas R. Brown Scholarship is awarded to a select group of National Scholar incoming freshmen who display excellence in academic and extracurricular endeavors.

Tom Brown, co-founder of Burr-Brown, led Burr-Brown to worldwide prominence in the development, manufacturing and marketing of data conversion and mixed signal integrated circuits. Texas Instruments acquired Burr-Brown in 2000 for an amount that still holds the record for an Arizona-grown entrepreneurial endeavor.
