The Alumni Scholarship program is open to integrated circuit (IC) design and electronic design automation (EDA) engineers who are between jobs and without personal resources or corporate support for their DAC attendance. The program will enable up to 50 qualified engineers to attend this year's DAC.
Scholarships, valued at approximately $500 each, will be awarded by lottery. Exhibit passes will be awarded to all qualified applicants who do not receive a full scholarship.
Scholarships do not include transportation and housing. Anyone whose employment situation changes prior to the conference is required to give up his or her scholarship to enable another applicant to attend.
The application process and additional details will be available in 2011.
