CICC Student Education Grant Awards

CICC Student Education Grant Awards

The CICC 2020 Student Education Grant Awards Program recognizes and promotes early career accomplishments in all integrated circuits fields by supporting graduate student attendance at CICC 2020.

With the help of the CICC SEGA program, up-and-coming young engineers:

  • may network with researchers from the industry, academia, and government from all over the world.
  • learn about IC design break-throughs, and about challenges that have not yet been solved or need to be addressed, in-person and in advance.

Education stipends up to US$250 per student will be awarded.

Priority will be given to graduate students worldwide who will NOT be an author or co-author for any papers at CICC 2020.
