Undergraduate Student Scholarships

Apply for the Scholarship

ECEC20 is able to offer a limited number of student scholarships to attend the conference. Scholarships are available to anyone with a student status of undergraduate in good standing. Scholarships can be used for registration for the conference and hotel room (see special instructions). Students are responsible for travel costs to and from the conference.

To receive the scholarship, you must complete the scholarship form which includes general information about yourself, a short description about why you would like to attend the conference, and one letter of recommendation for attending ECEC20 from a professor. The deadline to complete the form is March 3, 2020. Scholarships will be awarded as completed submissions come in until the funds are used. A waiting list will be established once all the funds are claimed; in the event of a cancellation, the first person on the waiting list will be considered for scholarship.

Notice of cancellation must be received by March 23, 2020, in order to accommodate those on the waiting list. If notice is not received by March 23, 2020, you are responsible for the scholarship costs. You must attend the conference according to your registration preference in order to receive your scholarship and not be responsible for registration and hotel costs.
