|Marie R. Pistilli Women in EDA Achievement Award
Recipient: Diana Marculescu, Professor at Carnegie Mellon University
For her significant contributions in helping women advance in the field of EDA technology.
|P.O. Pistilli Undergraduate Scholarships for Advancement in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering
The 2014 recipient is: Nadege Ineza
The objective of the P.O. Pistilli Scholarship program is to increase the pool of professionals in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science from under-represented groups (women, African-American, Hispanic, Native American, and physically challenged). In 1989, ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (SIGDA) began providing the program. Beginning in 1993, the Design Automation Conference provided the funds for the scholarship and a volunteer committee continues to administer the program for DAC. DAC normally funds a $4000 scholarship, renewable up to five years, to graduating high school seniors.
