Electro Mechanics Association Logo Sweetwater



In 2015, Texas State Technical College (TSTC) received a gift of $75,000 from EMA Electromechanics to create Sweetwater Veteran's Funds for College Education. EMA Electromechanics donated another $75,000 to Texas State Technical College in Oct. 2017, making $150,000 EMA has given to TSTC.



The gift funds an account called Sweetwater Veteran’s Funds for College Education, which was established when EMA gave the first gift of $75,000. Funds will go towards helping veterans complete their technical training at the college's West Texas campuses in Abilene, Breckenridge, Brownwood and Sweetwater

Veteran students completing an associate degree can apply to receive up to $2,500, and those completing a certificate can receive up to $1,250. These funds will help veteran students with tuition and books, program supplies and living, child care and transportation expenses.


EMA was founded in 1952 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but expanded to open its Sweetwater location in 2010 where they develop and manufacture specialized electromechanical equipment for wind and solar generation.


Applications are available for veterans at the Abilene, Breckenridge, Brownwood and Sweetwater campuses from Pam Marler at 325-738-3347 or by emailing
