"This program is one of the ways in which DAC serves our community of engineers," said Ellen Sentovich, the 2006 DAC chair, who oversees the DAC Engineering Scholarship program. "We are delighted to offer these scholarships to those who otherwise might not attend DAC this year, to give them an opportunity for the invaluable information gathering and networking that DAC provides."
DAC engineering scholarships, valued at approximately $400 each, will be awarded by lottery to as many as 15 eligible applicants. To be eligible, participants must have attended DAC in the past. In addition, consideration will be given to those who have participated in other EDA industry activities. Scholarships do not include transportation and housing. In the event that a scholarship recipient's situation should change prior to the conference, he or she will be asked to give up the scholarship so another applicant may attend.
DAC offers a variety of registration options. For more details, visit the DAC Web site located at: www.dac.com
