In May of this year, we at CengageBrain introduced our national competition, America’s Top TA, as part of our ongoing dedication to education. College students from across the U.S. were given the opportunity to recognize the teaching assistants (TAs) who have had the greatest impact on their education. For the grand prize, we pledged to establish three $2,500 scholarships in the winning TA’s name, and our winner earned the duty of determining the scholarship criteria and ultimately selecting the scholarship recipients.
