"We are thrilled to launch the ‘EPI Data Center Futurist Scholarship’ program and the $1 million investment shows we are serious about giving back to the community and do what we can to bridge the skills gap in the data center industry," said Edward van Leent, Chairman & CEO for the EPI Group of Companies."

By joining forces with like-minded organizations and individuals, EPI aims to create a sustainable and impactful program that will empower individuals from diverse backgrounds to thrive in the data center industry.
