DAC Young Fellows Program 2023

Attention all students! Are you ready to take your future career to the next level? Then don't miss out on the exciting opportunity to attend the 60th Design Automation Conference in beautiful San Francisco!

As a DAC Young Fellow, you'll have the chance to learn from experts in the industry, network with like-minded individuals, and participate in hands-on labs, career coaching, a summer school, and fun contests. Plus, we'll cover your conference registration fee and offer grants of up to $1200 to help with travel expenses. The program is funded by the Design Automation Conference with support from Cadence Design Systems and Synopsys Inc.

You don't need to have prior conference experience to apply - the program is designed as a stepping stone for early-stage students with no or little conference experience. We welcome applicants from all over the world and from all backgrounds, and we especially encourage applications from underrepresented groups. If you're a full-time student in EDA or a related field, and are available to participate in the program from July 9th to July 13th, 2023, don't hesitate to apply! A jury will review the applications and select around 100 DAC Fellows, so don't miss out on this amazing opportunity!
