In May of this year, we at CengageBrain excitedly introduced our first ever national scholarship competition, “America’s Top TA.” College students from all around the country nominated their favorite teaching assistant by telling us why their TA deserved to be named America’s Top TA. For the grand prize, CengageBrain, the premier destination for purchasing college textbooks, agreed to establish three $2,500 scholarships in the winning TA’s name, and the reigning Top TA got to be part of the integral team determining the scholarship criteria and ultimately selecting the scholarship recipients. For those of you on the hunt for scholarships, stay tuned! Scholarship entries will be accepted starting in December.

After all the nominations were collected from students, a group of CengageBrain Student Ambassadors then narrowed them down to our 10 finalists. Read more

Congratulations to Rutgers Organic Chemistry TA Dan Coiro for winning the first ever America’s Top TA Competition by CengageBrain!

Over the last month, students from across the country submitted nominations and voted for America’s Top TA. Students had to write an essay consisting of 100 words or less, then CengageBrain Student Ambassadors narrowed down the student testimonials to a list of ten finalists before a winner was determined by opening it up for public voting through the CengageBrain Facebook page.
