The objective of the P.O. Pistilli Undergraduate Scholarship for Advancement in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering is to increase the pool of professionals in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science from under-represented groups (female, African-American, Hispanic, Native American, and disabled students). In 1989, ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (SIGDA) began providing the program. DAC normally funds a $4000 scholarship, renewable up to five years, to graduating high school seniors who have a 3.00 GPA or better (on a 4.00 scale).
Chris C.N. Chu Iowa State University, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
For advancing EDA technology in the areas of Physical Optimization and Placement.
