DAC is proud to support hard-working students, and sponsors a variety of scholarship programs.
The A. Richard Newton Graduate Scholarship
supports graduate research and study in electronic design automation and circuit design, in honor of the late Dr. A. Richard Newton.
The P. O. Pistilli Undergraduate Scholarship
is awarded by DAC to increase the pool of professionals in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science from under-represented groups (women, African-American, Hispanic, Native American, and disabled students).
The DAC Young Student Support Program
encourages advanced undergraduate students (Junior or Senior levels) and first-year graduate students (beginning first-year, or finishing first- and beginning second-year) to join the electronic design automation profession or pursue graduate studies in this field. This program introduces students to DAC and the design automation profession through meetings, tours, and by association with a mentor who is an advanced graduate student already working in the area.
The DAC Alumni Scholarship
program is open to integrated circuit (IC) design and electronic design automation (EDA) engineers who are between jobs and do not have personal resources or corporate support to attend DAC.
