The Doug Peacock Scholarship Program
At TransDigm, we highly value the diversity and talent in our workforce, and we are dedicated to nurturing promising young individuals who may face barriers to developing their skills. As such, we established the Doug Peacock Scholarship program – named after one of our founders who passed away in 2020 – to provide educational opportunities, particularly in engineering and business, to minority students.

Approximately 840 scholarships have been awarded for the 2020-2024 academic years, which includes continuing to support many of the students from the previous, inaugural year of the program, which includes continuing to support many of the students from the previous, inaugural year of the program. TransDigm will continue expanding the Doug Peacock Scholarship program in future years.
